Common Pheasant 'hen' [Phasianus colchicus]

We have loads of them, beautiful. I don't know why people want to shoot them.

  3. Is it just me, or does it seem rude to tag any creature as 'common'?

  4. You're right of course Bob. The amswer is "money" as always - big money in providing shooting days. £500 a day around here for winter "sport".

  6. They are charming birds. And shooting is a very one-sided 'sport'. Sigh.

  7. Bob, excellent shots! I don't know why either! I guess it's the caveman coming out in them!

  8. It is strange that they are hunted.

    1. Hunting of animals, birds and other species is awful, and must be stopped Sandi.

  11. Hey Bob! Nice to see pheasant photograph. Pheasants are some great birds, but their sound is not anything beautiful. In particular, if they shout in the early morning under the window. With us they disappeared a few years ago. Trap people ate pheasants or a beast. But the pheasants no longer here. Greetings.

    1. This one I found in my garden, actually they love my garden, probably it because the seeds fall from the birdfeeders John.

  21. Many have beaten me to the punch, but she looks to be quite annoyed by the term, "common". Wonderful shots, as always.
