Ring-Necked Pheasant

How do snowmen get around?

They ride an icicle!

Interesting Fact: Male Ring-necked Pheasants may harass other ground-nesting birds, such as the Gray Partridge and the Greater Prairie-Chicken. Female pheasants sometimes lay their own eggs in these birds’ nests. This may explain why some male pheasants have been seen chasing away male prairie-chickens and courting females—the pheasants may have been raised in prairie-chicken nests and imprinted on the wrong species.

  1. I really enjoy the composition of this image.The neutral coloration of the vegetation and snow makes Pheasant stand out.

    • Thank you very much, I really enjoyed your feedbacks. You always pick up on things that other people don’t see. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. Beautiful pheasant. I haven’t seen many around here lately. My wife had quite a battle with one on the ditch bank years ago when she was out running and a pheasant flew out and attacked her. It sounds like witch snowmen riding icicles.

    • Oh wow that is crazy, I would never expect that from them. But I have to agree their population went down a lot. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing this with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

      • It was strange. I had roosters that would attack people like that, so it might not be that out of the ordinary if the pheasant was guarding a hen.
