… and jumped off it.
They went to the tree stump …
… and to the fallen tree with fungi on it …
… and to the ground …

At 16:10, there were three male golden pheasants.
At 16:45 there was just one male golden pheasant.
At 17:18, again one male golden pheasant came, and went.
A few minutes later, a female golden pheasant.
The female went to the food on the table. However, then a northern goshawk caught an oriental turtle dove. This distressed all birds which flew away. Including the female pheasant. Usually, pheasants prefer running to flying, even if fleeing from danger. But this was apparently an exception for this female.
With nearly all birds gone, it became time for us to go as well. However, there will be another blog post about the golden pheasant hide: about the non-pheasant birds we saw there.
