Thank you Alan,
It is indeed a tough one. I have thought about putting a scarecrow up where I feed these pheasants, but not sure if it would scare pheasants away also? They do come close to my home, so I will try that. I have yet to put some shrubs, but when I do, I will try that also.
Fantastic suggestions Alan, thank you so much.
That's going to be a tough one with them all being large birds.
The only things I can think of is..if you have any bushes or trees where you can put the food under a bit of cover you could try placing the food there, with Pheasants being a woodland bird I should think they are used to scratching about looking for food, If the Pheasants are used to you you could try feeding them closer to the house, the Rooks etc I get in my garden wont come near the house.
