Corfu # 6 Vidos Island (part 1)

When I was in Corfu (it seems so long ago now) I visted Vidos Island, which is a short ferry ride from where we stayed. It is a beautiful little island that you can walk around quite easily if you have the energy. I took some lovely views but this is not what I want to share with you today. As we left the ferry, we stopped to have a drink at a small cafe and this was the floor show!
So what are these rabbits watching..........
....pheasants. It was so interesting to see that as the pheasants approached the rabbits closed in and positioned themselves in a way that looked threatening. The pheasants did not come any closer and pretended they didn't see.
Even the male decided to turn his back and walk away.
We came across this little area where a lady was feeding pheasants and turkeys, it was then that we decided maybe these and the rabbits were being bred for the table! Better not to dwell on this!

Mmmm rabbits, cuddly and nutritious! Although, those guys seemed a bit scrawny.

I'm wondering what dishes they were serving!

Reminds me of what I saw out my window this morning...rabbits and gambel quail. I must say that the quail aren't nearly as colorful as your "birds."

Happy Monday
