Ring-necked Pheasant
Phasianus colchicus
The Ring-necked Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) is a bird which was introduced to North America as a game bird. It is native to China. It has become established in much of the United States and portions of southern Canada. The two shots of the adult male here were taken in Phillips Co., Montana, in June, 2001, with a canon EOS 3 and EF 500mm F/4 L IS lens on Fuji Velvia. One image shows the bird hiding in the grass. The shot at right, with the three baby pheasants on some brush, was taken at Bear River N.W.R., Box Elder Co., Utah, in June, 2001, with the same equipment as above.
The female Ring-necked Pheasant shown here was at Medicine Lake N.W.R., Sheridan Co., Montana, in June, 2007. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens.
The male Ring-necked Pheasant shown here was working along the edge of a Soy Bean field in Harlan Co., Nebraska after a thunderstorm in July, 2009. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 50D and an EF 500mm F/4 L IS lens.
