Scene of the Crime

Is that feathers I see?

 Maybe this guy?

Looks like a small bed of feathers off the east end of my deck

Hi Steve. I've seen that scene at my house before. I'm going to submit a good thief pouter article to you soon. I've been raising Picas and Moroncelos for the past couple of years.

On a different note, I'm not sure if you are a certified archeologist or not but I work for the USDA/NRCS and we are in need of archeologists to help with our arc clearances. If you would be interested in some work you can email me at

i would love to hear more about your birds, and have always thought Moroncelos are a nice breed. I have mostly homer X Rafenos, bred back to Raf, for pouters.

My wife Libby is a former archaeologist with interest in early Americans-- she dug at Hell gap in the sixties. Blog partner Reid (Farmer) is active and ongoing in the same area. I'm just a fan who studied Biology and would end up writing...

Sure thing Steve. I'll send you some photos and do a little write up on them. I'm basically outcrossing Moroncelos to Horseman, Cubans, Homers, and Picas and then crossing back till I get the color pattern back. I don't think too many Moroncelos were brought over and they need a little outcrossing.

Exactly as I had to do for Rafenos.

Send an email to "ebodio- at- gilanet- dot- com" and I will send photos.
