This Ringneck Pheasant is posed as if taking flight to the viewer's left. The simple coloring of this bird’s wings and tail are starkly different when compared to the vibrant colors of its body and head. A band of white separates the bird’s dark blue head and red cheeks from the reds, browns, and gold that make up its body. This piece has earned our taxidermy quality rating of Excellent and would make a great addition to any room with an outdoorsy or western decor.
