Golden Pheasant


This is a photo of a Golden Pheasant, or "Chinese Pheasant", (Chrysolophus pictus) which is a gamebird of the order Galliformes (gallinaceous birds) and the family Phasianidae. It is native to forests in mountainous areas of western China but feral populations have been established in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
