Pheasant In My Yard

Posted in Reference Photos

Never know what will show up in the yard.  Last week brought a gorgeous pheasant!

Ring Necked Pheasant

We’ve never seen a pheasant hanging out around here. Taking a peek at shows that they do actually live around here year round.  Who knew?

I like the way his white “collar” looks like the collar of a button down shirt. His face has iridescent green with a red around his eyes.

The markings on this back are so interesting. Comma like half circles on the upper feathers, and stripes on the lower. You can see the shine of the iridescent on the back of his head.

Here you can see the stripes on his tail and the great oranges and rust on his feathers.  Just a beautiful bird. I was able to take a fair amount of photos right through the window.  He will definitely show up in future paintings.
