Handsome Pheasant

One of the handsome golden pheasants made an appearance when we visited Maple Glen Garden on 06 October but not as close as previously. I still wanted to post the shots though. He was more interested in keeping close to a near female than being near us.  For a closer view, see  The Golden Boy.

These are extreme crops from a couple of photos I took.

These birds are fortunate to be able to roam free around the extensive gardens.

Maple Glen Garden, Glenham, Southland, New Zealand.

    1. I love those things like you do Jill! I’ve been hoping you’d come by as I’ve really been wanting to ask you about Sharon M. Have been very concerned that I’ve heard nothing since she mentioned serious health issues some time ago. Is there anything you can tell me? If you’re in contact with her please tell her that I miss her a lot and that I often think about her.

  1. I grew up with the ring-necked pheasant, too. You rarely went into a late season corn field without flushing one. This is a beautiful bird, though I suspect it would have a harder time hiding in the corn.

    1. In NZ we have some ring-necked pheasants that roam free. Golden pheasants come from mountainous, forested areas of Central and Western China and are kept in some aviaries and gardens here.
