Friendly Neighbors

So I'm sitting at my computer the other day, when from corner of my eye I spot something moving outside. At first I thought aliens had landed, but quickly realized it was just two odd birds poking around. When I went out to take a photo they came running after me. I wasn't scared...really. It was pretty funny. They hung around, and we cackled a bit, but when they discovered I didn't have anything to offer in the way of food they moved on. Turns out they're my neighbor's guinea hens. They visit daily now, and they leave wonderful surprises all around my yard. I just have to be careful not to step in these surprises when I go to the compost.
