A Pea Hen was perched on the wall around the Middleton Place Stable Yard late one afternoon.

I hadn’t seen or heard any Pea Fowl at Middleton this spring and had wondered if they still hosted any. They roam free and easily fall victim to any number of predators.

Looking around I only saw this one dapper looking hen, no Peacocks. Other years a half dozen or more were all around the stable area.
