The Visitor


The garden year of 2011 started with the surprise arrival of a peacock.
The RSPCA and our local District Council tell us that peacocks have become feral in the Adelaide Hills.
Apparently the males tend to go walkabout around mid-summer, stay for a while and then move on.

He quickly made himself at home and found shady spots in which to escape the heat of summer sun.
He also selected a tree where he could spend each night about 10m above the ground.
He stayed with us more or less continuously through January - May.
