Lady Amherst’s Pheasant

This gallery contains 2 photos. Despite the feminine-sounding name, this reclusive bird is, in fact, the (very) showy male of his species. This photo was shot through (and vignetted by) some leaves, so close cropping was done to make him appear bigger.

He’s hotfooting it around the perimeter! The Lady Amherst’s pheasant did not deign to leave the Staff Only areas of the biome, but furtively goose-stepped back and forth from behind the foliage. Sort of like a metronome. Photographed at Bloedel Conservatory on April 27.
