Swinehoe Pheasant Pair 
Swinehoe Pheasant Pair

Range: Mountains of central Taiwan. Habitat: Forests. Description: Adult males are larger than the similar edwardsi and also differ in having a short white crest, a blue head, neck and breast, but the red face wattles are much more developed. There is a large white patch on the upper back, the shoulders are maroon and the wing-coverts are metallic greenish-black. The long central tail feather is white. Hens are mostly brown, speckled with triangular yellowish-buff markings. First year males look similar to adult males, but are duller and the white patch on the back is mottled brown. Status in Wild: At one time, the wild population was in danger of extinction with under 200 birds remaining. Fifty years later, thanks to protection, national park establishment and a reintroduction of captive-bred birds, wild numbers are now stable in Taiwan. Interesting Facts: Named for British ornithologist and naturalist Robert Swinhoe, 1836-1877, who first described the species in the 1862. He is also known for describing 16 other bird species from Formosa. Avicultural Data Status in Aviculture: Well established and common. Breeding Season: Begins early here in the midwest, not uncommon to have hens lay in early March and usually lasts through mid May. Breeding Age: Second year, but first year birds are often fertile. Clutch Size: 3 to 6 Incubation Period: 24-26 days
Price: $275.00
