Description of Pheasant

´╗┐The pheasant also belongs to the family Phasianidae. The history of the pheasant suggests that it originated from one of several wild jungle fowl of southeast Asia at least five thousand years ago, if not more. The greatest variety is located in Asia, but there are several native species in Europe as well as in Africa. The pheasant in North America were imported as sport gamebirds. North America has no native pheasant. The pheasant does not roam very much and prefers to keep itself in a specific territory. The bird will forage on the ground, but at night will try to sleep in trees or in some other specific cover. The pheasant male is very polygamous and will mate with as many females as he can find.Hedoes not help in the rearing of the babies and actually serves no function other than breeding and calling out when danger is near. The male has a much different color pattern than the female. He is colorful and bright-feathered; she is dull in color. The pheasant builds her nest on the ground and needs to blend in to the surrounding area in order to elude predators that might kill her or rob her nest. The pheasant is a strong flyer, but does have to run before taking off on most occasions. It has a long neck, very strong legs and feet, and a powerful beak that is hooked at the end. There are several species of pheasant in the world, with the most numerous being the domesticated chicken.
