Pheasant Friend

I got a call the other day about this pheasant that has taken up residence on a nearby ranch. He always greets them when they are headed out to the pasture to cut hay.

But it isn’t really a greeting. He is actually protecting his hen and baby chicks. He will chase you down and peck you if he can get close enough- like when you have to close a gate. Yeow!

He is a beautiful bird and I hope he and his family will continue to be safe.
