Pheasant

The internet is a wonderful tool. I think this is a common pheasant. Anyway, that’s what matches up on the internet search. This shot from the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray was taken of the birds in captivity. The park takes care of injured animals, many of whom cannot be returned safely to the wild. It was a great opportunity to catch the rich coloration.

  1. I remember pheasants all over Pennsylvania where I am from originally. When I moved to Niagara Falls, they used to be running along the Parkway. I have not seen pheasants in a really long time. It would be terrible to lose these colorful birds. You took some wonderful images of them.
