FEATHERY FRIDAY #56
We’re so excited for the first Feathery Friday of the year! We’re off to China today to meet one handsome bird! Let’s get out there and go bird watching!
MEET THE RING-NECKED PHEASANT!

Length/Weight: 35”/1 ¾-4 ½ lb
Conservation Status: common
- Male Ring-necked Pheasants have bright green heads and white rings around their necks.
- Female ring-necked pheasants are drab brown.
- They have long tails.
- Ring-necked pheasants tend to stay, feed and nest on the ground.

Ring-necked pheasants are really neat birds. We love the males’ bright green heads. They must look good to attract the lady birds! Hehehehe!
