Bird Pic Of The Week

Ring-necked Pheasant

(Phasianus colchicus)

Where: Ligonier, PA, VA • Rt. 381

Notes: Late that afternoon as we headed toward our hotel after visiting the Powdermill Avian Research Center (www.powdermillarc.org) in Rector, Pennsylvania. A strange silhouette along the roadside caught my attention, so we turned around at the first opportunity and returned to investigate. There sat this male Pheasant foraging in the grass behind a split-rail fence. Soon we realized that several other birds remained hidden in the bushes nearby, as their heads began to poke up out of the undergrowth. Soon the rest of the flock cautiously crept out in to the open. Then, they quickly scuttled around the back of our vehicle and crossed the road. Once up the bank, they all disappeared into the tall grasses of the adjacent field. This species is actually a native to Asia, but has been widely introduced in many parts of the world as a game bird. This male was about two feet long and probably weighed about four or five pounds. The coloring and patterns on its back are the perfect camouflage for the grasslands they inhabit.
