Pheasant






Pheasant in Porvoo 15.6.2014.

The male was eying me suspiciously while
the female was hiding in the grass.

Finland's first pheasants were released into
the wild near Helsinki in 1901.

I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.

  13. Pheasant and especially the males fanzant are beautiful and colorful birds. I often see them here in the polder and can really enjoy them. Nice bracket resets all of the male pheasant.
