was the view out our back window a couple of days ago...
This is a trio of peacocks that moved into our neighborhood several months ago. They hang out in a few acres of trees adjacent to our place. To describe their raucous call as sounding like three elephants learning to play the trumpet is unfair to elephants.
Normally "evidence" of their passage through the yard is more, um, indirect, however, this morning we caught them in the act.
