A reeves pheasant who wasn't bothered by me in the slightest. Does anyone know if they are bred in the UK?
In reply to BenjiS:
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Not an expert but I believe they are bred in UK and there are the usual escapees or released birds which will breed in the wild and seem to survive just as other pheasants do, I've also seen a male Reeves pheasant in the wild too although not sure they are such common birds to see.
