The Bird

Although they are part of the same family of animals and share characteristics, pheasants do differ slightly from peacocks. The male pheasant does have multiple colors, but the male peacock is visually spectacular. Female pheasants are brown, which helps them remain camouflaged in fields. This is particuarly necessary when there are eggs and babies to protect. The habitats of these similar birds are surprisingly disparate. While peacocks thrive in forests, pheasants are found in meadows. Food consumed is nearly identical for both birds. Pheasants generally walk and run on the ground, but they do indeed fly short distances. The ring-necked pheasant is commonly found throughout the United States, though is native to Asia. They have widely been accepted as a "game bird," which means they are hunted for sport and food.

Although one might think of a pheasant as only a singular bird with certain characteristics, there are actually many species of pheasants. Within all these species are birds with various colors and from numerous countries. Some of these species, which have feathers have assorted color, include the white eared, golden, Siamese fireback, Mikado and Koklass.
