Garden Characters

One thing about this new garden is that it's loaded with fowl. Fowl and llamas. This guy in the picture is always busy jumping up on things, displaying, and making peacock noises. Have you ever heard a peacock? Let me explain: there's a low "honk!" followed by an immediate "Yeeoooooooww!" that rises and falls (the sound makes me think of a parabola). Every once in a while he does this 3 times in a row. He's a night owl, not so much a morning bird, so we hear him until around 10:00 p.m.
