what's in your backyard?

We came home this afternoon after a lovely lunch in El Real with our Pal Al (more on that tomorrow) to discover this pair of Guinea hens nestled under the palm tree in the back garden.  I don't know where they came from, how they got into the garden or how long they are planning to stay.  They didn't say.  But they're quite beautiful and I'm happy to offer them shelter while they need it.  I don't know if they're nesting, if they're a pair ~ boyfriend and girlfriend ~ or if they're just a couple of freeloaders, but it's nice to have something back there besides iguanas.

Very cool - I hope they stay awhile and you name them. What do they eat? Iguanas?
