Pheasant, Ring-necked
-Phasianus colchicus Linnaeus

The gorgeous male with long (40.5 to 45.5cm) tapering pointed tail, bill resembling that of a domestic rooster, and spurred tarsus, is quite unlike any other wild bird in Canada. The white ring about neck is variable in extent and sometimes lacking.
