This guy was running our 1/2 acre garden out in the country.
i like the 2nd shot best...it show the colors
Nopayahnah- I think so. Vanhevel- Thank you for your kind words!! I crawled quite far to get close enough to this guy to get good shots!!
lovely series !
woah! great series, the images are all so crisp!
Could it be molting?
I think it is a bird - LOL. Good capture and provocation to boot.
I have raised many ring-necked pheasants and never seen one like this. It was a little sickly looking so that might be part of it. Thank you for investigating Liam! & thanks for the input auntnance123!
I believe you're right, Liam. The tail is too long for a francolin (as well as a spurfowl in case it was an escapee of something exoctic).
A ratty juvenile male Ring-necked Pheasant it seems to be:http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?...
Go right ahead Liam, i don't mind at all. I was hoping you would see my unknown post!
An escapee for sure. I'm thinking a type of Francolin. Mind if I ask some friends?
Thank you Emma, i didn't even think of that.
Thank you Gerardo! I think it's some kind of pheasant but I cant find a picture match.
The last one with it eating the Seed Pod is great. Great one for the Seed Pod mission!
