Golden Pheasant

The Chrysolophus pictus (scientific name) or golden pheasant is found in China; however, some are found as far as the UK. An adult male typically measures an average of 90-105 cm; its tail is the longest part of its body. The golden pheasant male is a beautiful bird, and many folk tales about it, abound. The female, however, wears a brown plumage. It remains well camouflaged in its natural surroundings, despite its bright colours. The golden pheasant is an omnivore, eating both roots and small invertebrates. The size of a clutch is 12 eggs, incubated for 23 days. Since it is a clumsy flyer, this bird prefers to run. Its IUCN listing is the LEAST CONCERN.
