Juvy Ring-necked Pheasant Rooster

I was caught off guard spotting this crazy colored game bird from a distance. I didn't know what it was. As I approached closer, I was thrilled to see a juvenile pheasant coming into color.

It is great that you captured pheasant at this stage in his development.

Great shot Hannibal! He is one scraggly looking bird but he will be beautiful in a few weeks.

This is something we never see here in my neck of the woods as the only pheasants we have are adult birds stocked for the fall hunting season.
