Over the past week, I've been able to see Lady the Pheasant almost every day.  I mention her in this week's Post-Bulletin column.

She brings me such joy and peace!  Here's Lady.....

I especially like this one because you can see my neighbor in the background.

My newest project is trying to become friends with Lady using carrots.
I read online that pheasant like all fruits and vegetables.

As you can see, she is not yet interested in my carrots.

I think the problem was that I put them on top of the snow and I should have put
 them in the spot where there wasn't too much snow!  I'll remember for next time!


  1. Dear Emily, my husband is a professor of Wildlife Biology and he says pheasants won't eat carrots. They eat bugs and seeds. He suggests cracked corn or other grains. Good luck!

    1. Carol! Thank you so much for this helpful tip! Where should I buy cracked corn? This is great. Please tell your husband I said, "THANK YOU!" :)

  2. My father made friends with a pair of pheasants by sitting quietly in a lawn chair with cracked corn on the ground in front of him. They came back year after year and eventually would take some from his hand.
