Sighting

Today, while cycling eastbound on Warm Springs, as I crossed the bridge over the river, spotted some black and white speckled birds. This caused a doubletake, I stopped, turned back and there they were: 10 black and white speckled chickens with red combs. It's hard to imagine feral chickens and how they would survive the coyotes.
