Title - Pheasants Pheasant



Pheasant Including peafowl, all species of pheasant except one, originate from Asia. In the wild most pheasants inhabit wooded areas, ranging from tropical lowland forests of Malaysia to the mountainous areas of the Himalayas.

Because of their ground nesting behaviour most female pheasants are well camouflaged with comparatively dull plumage. The cocks, by contrast, are some of the most splendidly coloured birds in the world. Of the 49 species, 28 are listed as being threatened in the wild.
