I wonder if those feathers on the crown of his head hurt? Makes my head hurt to look at it!

There were a couple of colorful males and their females.....all enjoying the sun.....this guy was sitting on his perch....soaking up the rays. NONE of them spread out their tail feathers so we could get a good view. Maybe on another day. They are beautiful birds. I just stuck my camera lens through one of the openings in the chain links of the fence....and zoomed in.

If you don't know what a peacock sounds like......here is a clip.....they are VERY VERY LOUD! This is not so loud here....

this pigeons were inside the top floors of this building.....

I had gone to check it out.....as it is for sale........(this is the SIDE of the building which looks pretty crappy....not the front)

INSIDE the top floors was where the Masonic Lodge used to be ....and I really wanted to get a peek at the architecture inside......as I knew it would be amazing.  Well it was......but apparently the pigeons thought so too as many had gotten inside and had died inside.  It was a mess and I am sure a health hazard as well!  Here are a few pics of the BIG HALL room area inside where the Masonic Lodge had been.
