Colorful Pheasant



A male pheasant was spotted Wednesday, Oct. 25, along the road near a woods in the Ridgeville Corners area. The male is colorful with a dark somewhat irridescent head, red patches around the eyes, white neck ring, and brown, speckled body feathers. The female has just the brown, speckled feathers, which is perfect camouflage when nesting on the ground.– photo by Deb Lecklider
