How to identify

Pheasants are large, long-tailed game birds. The males have rich chestnut, golden-brown and black markings on their bodies and tails, with a dark green head and red face wattling. Females are mottled with paler brown and black. They were introduced to the UK ago and more recent introductions have brought in a variety of breeds for sport shooting.
