Had the pleasure one evening watching a Ring necked Pheasant as it and a couple of hen Pheasants fed while crossing some scrub ground. While the hens kept under cover in the longer grasses the cock remained in the open, like me was keeping watch.
Here he stands in the warm evening sun light showing off his well tailored suit and face markings.
They make a range of sounds has they communicate with each other, from crowing to beating there wings. Sometimes both at the same time.
The above sequence of shots show the wing beating without the crowing. Below a couple of photographs from him crowing Pheasant calling
These Photographs where taken over a half hour period where I used a fence post has a make shift tripod. Shot with a Nikon D7200 and a Sigma 150 – 600 mm Telephoto lens. Processed and cropped in Lightroom. My last shot of the evening was where I caught him crossing a break in the ground cover and the warm light on his back.
I put the camera down and spent the last ten minutes just enjoying the scene.
Hope you have enjoyed seeing this beautiful bird with me and thank you for visiting.
