Peacocks on the loose in Boulder community

BOULDER, Colo. -- The old saying, "birds of a feather flock together" can be seen in one south Boulder community right now.

That's because a peacock and a peahen are currently on the loose. The birds ended up in the Shanahan Ridge community right after the New Year.

"It was the second day of the year and I opened the door and they were literally looking at me and I said, ‘whattt?!’" joked Tamra Star, who lives in the area.

The birds belong to a nearby ranch. But over New Year's weekend, a wind storm moved in and blew them towards the Shanahan Ridge community.

"Turned out they had blown out of a tree in that really bad wind storm and [now] here they are," Star said.

The birds' owner has been trying to capture them so she can take them back to her ranch; so far she's had little luck.
