Such handsome fellows!


This guy was with his lady love, but unfortunately I could not capture her.  And even if I could she was out in the plowed field and blended right in.


Another handsome bird. 

This makes three or four times I have driven through and seen some.  For several years we hardly ever drove through the strip pit area without at least seeing  one or two.  But the past 2 or 3 years, they have been few and far between.

He is gorgeous! Is he a Pheasant?

Yes, they are handsome...and they look as if they know it. Such dignity. :)

Bill said...

I haven't seen one up close and personal for... decades. Thanks for the post.

We used to see them in Colorado. But sadly, they are now endangered. They are gorgeous!!

...possibly because pheasant is 'good eating'? Or environmental reasons? These are very handsome shots. YAM xx

Magnificent birds, aren't they. I have four who now regularly visit and seem quite at home just a few feet from the houses and cars.

He's a handsome guy, for sure, and dressed to the T! I have never seen one in the wild, but would love to.

I don't think I have ever seen one of these in person. Quite a striking looking creature.

He is a nice looking bird. You captured him well.

He is so handsome. When we moved to town some 28 years ago, we used to have Pheasants visit our feeder area. One even tried to get up into this large feeder

Indeed! Look at those striking colors! Love them! Happy Midweek Rose! Stay safe

That is one beautiful bird.

harry said...

well, let's hope they are re-populating. Is there a hunting season? That would limit population.

Kodak said...

Yes, handsome fellow. I wish I could see some around here.

Yes, he is a handsome fellow. Love the red on him. He looks like a young one.
