Away With You…. PHEASANT.

Ring-Necked Pheasant

A pheasant says to a bull, “I would love to get on top of that tree, but I haven’t the energy.”

“Well,” says the bull, “why don’t you eat some of my dung? It’s packed with nutrients.”

So the pheasant eats some dung and finds that it gives him enough energy to get to the first branch. The next day, he eats some more and gets to the

next branch. This cycle continues for a week. Finally, the pheasant is at the top of the tree, where he is spotted by the farmer, who shoots him with a

shotgun.

Moral of the Story: bullsh*t might take you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.

Interesting Fact: While the birds normally don’t cover more than about 600 feet at a time, strong winds can extend their flights considerably. Observers in 1941 reported seeing a pheasant fly a record four miles while crossing a body of water. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Ring-necked_Pheasant/lifehistory )

  1. Sometimes, we’re too focused on getting to the top, without realizing, that where we were, was the right place for us, and as we’d realized this, it’s, too little, too late…

    • Thank you very much, they are quite beautiful birds. I appreciate you stopping by and checking out my work. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, I miss pheasants from Scotland. The nearest relative we have is the rare Attwater Prairie Chicken (a grouse, really.)
