Pheasant on a Stump ... Surveying

We recently purchased a property in Thailand and are in the process of raising forest and fruit trees. This is a male Pheasant (Greater Coucal or Crow Pheasant) common in Asia who is very territorial and has claimed the property as his territory, posing on a stump.

All natural Sony A6400 with Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS, processed in Capture One.


Wow! Nice colors. And, man, that’s some expression on his (?) face. We have hummingbirds in our yard that are super territorial like that. They chase off any other hummies that even think of coming near “their” feeder!
