Nancy and I just saw a male Reeve's Pheasant feeding on the ground beneath our bird feeders. It is a very extraordinary looking bird, with a white crown and an extremely long tail. It has the longest natural tail feather of any bird species! Our neighbor may have taken some photos of it. I will check with him later.
As it is native to China, it is definitely an escape or released bird. Neither of us have ever seen is before. Pretty exciting!
Take care, Bob
