White Hills Pheasant

This ring-necked pheasant was spotted by George Magdon off of Birdseye Road in the White Hills of Shelton. Pheasant are not native to the US (they originally came from Asia) but they have naturalized in agricultural areas, and are also sometimes stocked for hunting. It's a bird of farms, not forests, more often seen in the Midwest.
