Ring-Necked Pheasant: Phasianus colchicus
Over the winter bird feeders are hung up and bird seed gets dropped on the ground from the smaller birds feeding. Over the last few days a Ring-necked Pheasant has been dropping into peck around the ground under them. So sitting having a coffee this morning I looked out and there he was. Yes this is the cock bird has the hen is a dull brown colour. So grabbing the camera and putting the automobile/car between myself and the Pheasant, I made it over the yard without spooking the bird. Leaning over the front of the vehicle I got a few shots off. Here’s is one off them.
Enjoy and thank you for viewing.
