Pheasant Family

Male and Female

Found on the edge of a Bird Reserve on the parkland, these are wild Pheasant and not forming part of a reared Shoot. 
I was able to observe three young pheasant poults together with the male and female. They were all in tall grass and the young emerged infrequently so I was not sure of the number altogether.

  1. Lets hope the only way they'll be shot is with a camera.

    1. That will be the case John as they are on a reserve and miles from any shooting.

    1. They are pretty good at camouflage Simon and they are miles from cars on that reserve.

  5. Such lovely birds. I love how the shape of the colors in the feathers echoes the slope of the beak and forehead, as in the 4th from last shot.
