Pheasant..... a lovely bird

11th September 2015

I took this photo in August at my summer place. I love pheasants because they are lovely birds... but it is very difficult to the photo ...they afraid of people...


 Masterpiece of nature...


I watched it every morning ... walking along the fence..


The  women pheasants are smaller than men... and their feathers are not as beautiful as men..

    1. Andrew you are right but the cock is very noisy sometimes I have heard him at 5 a.m. while I was sleeping in the meadow..

    Pheasants are not native to Australia, but I believe that imported ones
    for zoos etc. have escaped into the wilds. I have only seen them in
    zoos and in pictures.
    The male is called a "cock" and the female is a "hen" - same terms
    as poultry (chooks).
    Cheers

  6. Wow....they are an endangered species in America. You must consider yourself very luck to have spotted it and was able to get such great photos of it.

    Thanks for stopping by to add your link to this super post today at I'd Rather B Birdin'. Have a great day.
