RING-NECKED PHEASANTS

One of the few times I saw a hen pheasant actually watching at a pair of drakes showing off their colorful plumage. Although non-native in North America, Ring-necked Pheasant is the state bird of South Dakota. Striking is the difference in size between the males and females. This introduced species is now found in most of the U.S. and Canada except in the southeastern states. In spring the red bare skin around the pheasants’ eyes becomes engorged and turns a brilliant red.
