Spotted a rooster

I saw this guy when I was on my way home. Glad he made it through the fall and winter.

He has been out on his own for 6-7 months and I see hawks in the area. I think he figured out how to avoid hawks, foxes and owls. Nesting is a different story for the hens.

Re: Spotted a rooster

I have a feeling there is a big difference in the birds we saw.

Re: Spotted a rooster

I know the one I saw is from the fall. He's in an area that gets some co-op birds.
