Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Exotic Chinese species introduced very locally in Britain, where declining and unlikely to be seen; however, captive birds might escape anywhere. Elusive inhabitant of mixed and conifer woodland, where runs quickly. Red-and-gold male stunning and unmistakable. Female differs from Common Pheasant in strongly barred plumage, dull pinkish (not gray) legs and feet.
