Imported from china and found most commonly in the central temperate plains the North American wild population is actually has stemmed from a number of sub-species most of which were imported by sportsmen for hunting. The long tail and striking rust, bronze and oranges of the males make this game bird a popular favorite.

The hens are much less conspicuous marked in mottled browns and grays with less dramatically long tail feathers. Short and broad wings are built for quick jumps and short gliding flights. Pheasants actually prefer to stay on the ground and out run danger. Relying to short flights only when necessary.
