Thieves

Watson, our peahen, was walking around the backyard squawking up a storm this afternoon. She usually does this when she is looking for her babies and since it has been about a month since we've seen her we knew she was sitting on eggs close to hatching somewhere. I followed her hoping she'd lead me to her hidden nest and sure enough she did, only to find these two yahoos trying to eat her eggs! I promptly relocated the offenders to the orchard and by the time I got back Watson was back on the nest and happy again.
