The pheasant was brought from East Asia to Europe since the mid-eighteenth century, where it was bred and crossed in captivity. Nowadays, the free-living pheasants are the result of many different species that where crossed with each other in the past, which can be easily seen when taking a look at the colorful marks. With its strong break the pheasant is able to crack and eat wheat, corn, berries, seeds and insects - which results in a very particular tast of the bird's meat.
Pheasants are not that exotic anymore but it is still hard to find good photos of this bird. Now, you can freely and easily choose different illustrations here at Colourbox.com!
