Today’s bird is the colourful Lady Amherst’s Pheasant, Chrysolophus amherstiae. Also seen in the aviary at Karanji lake, where you get to walk beside a whole nye of pheasants, while they go about their clucking and hopping.
This pheasant always reminds me of an old biddy who’s walking around, hands behind her back, trying to chase down those pesky kids.
