PHEASANT PHASIANUS

These playful lovelies are beautiful examples of the Common Pheasant, Phasianus Cholchicus.

We associate them with tweet shorn English aristocrats jauntily going about the hunt on horseback. Pheasants build their nests on the ground and can fly for short distances. They spend their days searching around field and stream looking for tasty insects, seeds and grain.
