The Gaudy Ring-neck Pheasant

One of the most requested birds at Downeast Thunder Farm is, surprisingly not a feeder bird, but a pheasant. After spying one strutting about the edge of our drive the other day, I decided to take a stab at designing it. Their color pattern is quite intricate – I hope I did him justice without making the pattern too complicated.

    Thank you for this lovely pattern. I just returned to WNY and occasionally see pheasants. I will make some to decorate family christmas trees for 2014 .

    Beautiful! I’m surprised you were able to fit the entire bird on an 8 X 11 sheet of paper.

    Beautiful, we can hear them every time we go outside spring-fall. I know they are still out there now- but hopefully tucked somewhere warm and cozy cause it is to darn cold!
