One more shot from the weekend...I think these guys were imported from China originally. Whatever the case, they are sure beautiful birds!

Many years ago, when I was a young teenager, my parents were building a house next to a state park. It was one of the most beautiful areas in NW Ohio in my opinion. There were eagles, deer, pheasants, and everything else wandering through the yard on a daily basis. We had a park on two sides of the property with dense woods and farmland on the other two sides. One of the walls we put up were glass windows for a sun room. One day, we got out there to work on the house, a pheasant flew into the window and fell to the ground directly below it. The feathers were turned into some nice fly fishing lures, but we didnt eat the meat. Poor little fella didnt even know what happened.

Where I grew up at the age of 9,10 and 11, It seemed like all summer long you'd here a gunshot...Look up and a pheasant was falling toward the ground doing some sort of "Funky Chicken" maneuver all the way down. Sometimes at night I'd see them in the skullery all plucked. Never knew who ate them:) Nice shots of these birds, thanks for the memory jog:)
