    I've seen and heard them many times up in Iowa. Those are another very beautiful bird. I would love to have them here.

    •  Rooster pheasants can be most annoying. (1+ / 0-)

      We have often had one run down the driveway right in front of the car, knowing absolutely no fear (probably having observed another one doing it and realizing that we weren't going to hit it). Bunnies do that, too.

      And there was the rooster pheasant who used to stand just outside the fence for the dogs' yard and taunt the dogs when they were out. All three were retrievers from parents with field titles and were extremely birdy, as a good retriever should be, and would they ever go nuts. "Mom! C'mon! Shoot it! Shoot it!"

      Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?
