This colorful Ringneck Pheasant proudly stands on one leg on a Birch stump surrounded by leaves. The simple coloring of this bird’s wings and tail contrast starkly with the vibrant colors of its body and head. A band of white separates the bird’s dark blue head from the reds, browns, and gold that make up its body. This piece has earned our taxidermy quality rating of Premier and would make a great addition to any room with an outdoorsy flair.
