Golden pheasant

Golden pheasants are by far my favourite bird because of their beautiful plumage.

They are, yellow, red, black, gold, brown, blue, orange, purple and green.

The females are not quite as impressive because they only have, dark orange,black ,white and brown like a normal female pheasant but with shorter legs and a longer tail.

It’s close relative, the Lady Amherst’s Pheasant,

is also pretty but looks a bit like a juvenile compared to the magnificent Golden Pheasant!

The Lady Amherst’s pheasant is also less common than the Golden Pheasant:

Golden pheasant:

500-1000 pairs

Lady Amherst’s Pheasant:

100-200 pairs

But both Pheasants must be definitely sought.
