Wary - as all presenters of the tongue twister about pheasants I once heard should be....

Gorgeous work - I've always been a big fan of pheasants, haha... one actually took a walk around my living room a few years ago whilst the dog was asleep, beautiful fellow but rather bold indeed! :'D

Wow - we've had them in the back garden but never the house!  OMG LOOK AT THAT

Hahaha, yep - he did a lap of the whole room as though he owned it and was expecting it, then just walked out. :XD:
We also had barn swallows that liked to come in one summer and do a circle of the room before flying out the door again. :giggle:
I think we had a robin in the house too before... everything seems to want to come in out here. :laughing:

Pheasants are beautiful - but their voice. :D Like someone's been tortured: "Kääääääääk!" from the bushes.

Not as loud or bad as the peacock - they are very loud and raucous.

We have one in our village that you can hear from a great distance!  :o (Eek)

The nearest peacock lives about 62 kms from our town - you have to travel to Korkeasaari zoo, if you want to hear those "lovely" screams. :D

I'm sure you must have better sounding birds a lot nearer. As I've said elsewhere some birds are all 'show business' - I sometimes think the more subtle pretenders have more to offer in reality.  Confused

Another weird sounding bird is corncrake (Crex crex). I've many times heard the bird but never seen it, it is way too shy. :)

We have the bittern, it is a very shy bird, lives in dense reed beds but has a very loud booming call. It's currently starring on a BBC television programme called 'Spring watch' which is closely following the lives of all sorts of wildlife as they restart their lives after winter. :huggle:

We have a similar program by Yle (the Finnish Broadcasting Corporation) - Kevätseuranta (literally translated as Spring watch, hah!).

I've also once seen the bittern. Handsome bird but it stayed quiet. :) We just stared at each other long time, then the bird decided it was time to go - I was wandering around the beach, when I spotted him, he was standing among the bulrush. (I lived on an island back then.)
