New Lodger

...and a new tick to boot for my local list, although i'm not sure that one bird really qualifies as a wild population.

Over the last few mornings I swore I was hearing a rooster strutting his stuff.  Sure enough nature's alarm clock, in the form of a very handsome Rhode Island Red, made himself known on the weekend. 

Wasn't sure whether to adopt him or eat him.  Just kidding.  The brush turkeys would be far better roasting.  In any case, having lost a best-of-three at tic-tac-toe I'll fulfill my side of the bargain with a custom build (due to steric issues the Mavic-Budgie was never going to cut it).  He has a name too, although Anita has forbidden me from making it known.
