...on the way home too. it kept me company for ages, and seemed to quite
enjoy having its picture snapped. any ornithologists out there who can
identify?

Did he follow you home? Did your mom let you keep him? He is extraordinarily beautiful in any case!

WoW! never seen one of those before!
Aren't they territorial? Was he not trying to chase you off?

Pants on fire; pheasant has to be hung for 4 to 6 days. Anyway, surely no-one with your aesthetic sensibilty could eat anything that pretty?

OJ says:

It does look a wee bit annoyed. I wonder if those black and white markings are designed to look fierce.

nige says:

ok hildegard, you gots me! it is hanging in my kitchen now...

thanks p, and OJ you're probably right about the markings. it kept circling me and getting closer - no fear whatsoever.
