Ducks in a Row...Well Sort Of

As I've mentioned before in my photoblog, we live near a nature preserve that has a big population of peacocks and they frequently stroll through our neighborhood. I was walking and came upon these 4 males sitting on my neighbor's front porch railing. It's hard to tell now, but each of these guys has some distinctive features, and when they wander into my yard and I feed them, while sitting right next to them, I can tell them apart. I've dubbed them John, Paul, George, and Ringo. For a while it was just George that came into my yard regularly, but then some of his pals started coming around. I had originally named him George just because I think of that as a rather plain name (apologies to any Georges out there) and thought it somewhat humorous when given to a grand peacock. Then when the others started hanging around, I had to name them too, so I went with a Beatles theme, because I love the Fab Four.

Just like the real Beatles, these guys have a lot of groupies - usually several females are walking with them!
