The Common Pheasant

(Phasianus colchicus)

As seen at Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire.

Such a pretty bird, and I'm told they're pretty good eating too.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] Yes I'm not for this "hunting season" bull. Currently in Victoria it's apparently Duck Season for no good reason at all and so many birds are shot, many in collateral damage. 'tis a sad sad thing.
