Satyr Tragopan

I got you a pheasant!

The satyr tragopan is a pheasant that lives in the eastern Himalayans. This brilliant plumage is a characteristic of males of the species. Like a number of other pheasants, the plumage of the females is a bit more modest. (I think the females are very pretty though! Brown is an under-appreciated color!)
