well the picts were taken over the weekend in oklahoma. My new toy is a canon rebel xti. I took most pictures in the manual mode instead of the point and shoot. I shot well over 300 pictures and got maybe 10 good ones I think. There is a big learning curve with it.

Question on that 1st Picture- That bird I would call a Jake around here from his beard lenght- but his spurs look like a 2 year old- is that a trait of a Mirriam?
Nevermind I would call that a 2 year old!

Nice pictures. Tame birds?

You can't ever rely solely on the beard for age. I've killed three year olds with short beards and jakes with 6" beards. Spurs are the closest means we have to aging birds.

The reason I asked if they were tame was because of the short beard, beat up tails, and ruffled feathers. Those are characteristics of farm-yard birds.

If that first one was a wild bird in OK, then he sure has some weird and awesome color.
