Wild pheasant supervising the school gardens by 


Wild pheasant on the grounds of the school gardens in Amsterdam SouthEast, the Netherlands. On Sunday morning, when the kids are not there and even the staff of the school gardens are enjoying their free weekend, Mr. Pheasant, together with his lady who was only a few steps away, keeps an eye on the little gardens. On his way, of course, he has a taste of the goodies grown on each little plot :)

Description

“The Common Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus), is a bird in the pheasant family (Phasianidae). It is native to Georgia (Ancient Colchis) and has been widely introduced elsewhere as a game bird. In parts of its range, namely in places where none of its relatives occur such as in Europe (where it is naturalized), it is simply known as the “pheasant”. Ring-necked Pheasant is both the name used for the species as a whole in North America and also the collective name for a number of subspecies and their intergrades which have white neck rings." (source: Wikipedia " )

Conservation status
Common Pheasant is on the IUCN red list of threatened species, status: least concern.
They are hunted for food and very wanted game all over the world.
