Subject: Reeve's Pheasant
Dear PABirders,

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.

Here are some photos and information from Wikipedia:

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,
