    A very cold setting for this Common Pheasant, but I guess he's used to it LOL. Don't know why really, but I rather like this picture, taken at our Mause feeders.

    Balance beam

    This Common Pheasant seems to be getting quite brave now - I've not seen him on the top rail before, the lower one once, but he usually reaches up to it to grab any spilt seed. Really not sure how he manages to keep his balance up there LOL. Back home now, hopefully the end of hospital visits...

    Cock Fighting

    One of our Sunday day's out we decided on Balintore Glen. A little over half way along, we'd stopped to watch a load of Red Kite flying around, when suddenly Ken spotted these two cock Pheasants. The were putting up quite a fight!! Got a great view of one of them and what it looks like under...

    Who's a pretty boy then?

    These male Common Pheasant really are so attractive when seen in their proper habitat, aren't they. This is a regular visitor to the Mause feeders, having a great time picking up what has fallen either by our clumsy hands or the habits of the birds who constantly drop seeds LOL.

    Call of the Common Pheasant (♂)

    I observed this Common Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus ♂) walking at the border of a nature reserve with reed area. Occasionally he stopped by to do his call. I found it so funny how it looked like he caught balance again after heavily doing his fast wing flapping after his call.

    One of a couple of females at a feeding station in the Grounds of Fountain's Abbey, Yorkshire. Annoyingly I didn't notice the shadow across the face of the bird until processing the photo

  15. Browsing


    He came really pretty close and I had to take his picture through the bars of the gate. I'd heard them around before, but this was the first male I'd seen at the feeding station... having a grand time foraging for the droppings. Got my laptop back, but it's been a bit of a job getting...
