What is a "pheasant"?
A pheasant is a beautiful and colorful bird belonging to the Phasianidae family. It is known for its vibrant plumage, with males displaying long, colorful tail feathers that can be iridescent and eye-catching. Pheasants are medium-sized birds with rounded bodies and strong legs adapted for running and scratching the ground. They have a distinct and elongated neck, a small head with a prominent crest, and a sharp beak. Pheasants are primarily ground-dwelling birds, but they are capable of short bursts of flight when necessary. They inhabit a variety of habitats, including woodlands, grasslands, and farmlands, and feed on a diverse diet consisting of seeds, grains, insects, and plant matter.
