Ring-necked Pheasant. Winter,1990. Cope, Colorado. My father and brother used to go to the little town of Cope Colorado for the pheasant hunt every year. I was a terrible shot and could never bag a bird.
The Imperial Pheasant is found in the forests of Vietnam and Laos. Its appearance resembles another Vietnam’s enigmatic bird, the Vietnamese Pheasant, but is larger in size, has longer tail, all dark blue crest and tail feathers. The latter species has white crest and central tail feathers.
