In this video you can see, eg, these birds:
Chinese golden pheasant [after 2 minutes], Larus melanocephalus (Mediterranean Gull), Eurasian spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia), Caspian Gull (Larus cachinnans), Squacco Heron, White Stork, Double-crested cormorant, Crested Duck.
We went to a hide to see golden pheasants.
On our way, crested ibis statues on city lampposts.
We passed beautiful fields of the countryside.
After arrival at the hide, we saw many other beautiful birds before the first golden pheasant turned up. These other birds will have their own, later, post on this blog.
At ten minutes past nine, the first golden pheasant arrived. It was a female, going to feed at a stoney table.
Then, we had to wait about three hours for the next pheasants.
They were three males. It being mating season, one might expect them to fight. But that did not happen, except for the brief episode on this photo.
Nearly all the of the time, about 15 minutes, they just walked around and fed, watching each other, but not attacking each other.
Maybe the weather was too cold for fights?
But not too cold for eating?
Then, no more pheasants for some hours again. There was a squirrel.
Stay tuned, as the golden pheasants will be back!
