Just before leaving the marshes, driving slowly before entering the Wheaton covered bridge therecrossing the Tantramar River..I spied a dark shape in the grass which showed some
red. A Pheasant? maybe?YES!I determined the best way I knew for sure was to get out of my car. and. sure enough.It was a pheasant I could see as It took of across the road away from me.My apologies for the not so clear pheasant photos. I have an affection for Pheasants as it is an ancestral name. My great, great greatgrandfather Stephen Pheasant was a singer at Peterborough Cathederal in England and he and his wife are buried in the grounds there, Their orphaned children made their way to Canada together and settled, making their homes in this area. So that is my Pheasant story today.
