    Daryl the escaped peacock had a magical summer. He scavenged for bugs and raided gardens, roaming freely, while his mate, Darla the peahen, nested at home. But all good things come to an end.

    Daryl was caught last week, four months after he escaped (probably frightened by a coyote) and 10 miles from home.

    Over the summer, Daryl dodged cars on Route 4, was sighted numerous times but always eluded capture. In the end, he was caught with patio furniture and cracked corn.

    His owner, Wendy Cassetta, is amazed by his safe return.

    "It gives me heart palpitations to think of how many of his lives he used up out there," said Cassetta of Chichester.
