No. 6 Ring-necked Pheasant The native home of this beautiful and useful Pheasant is China. It was successfully introduced into Oregon, Washington and British Columbia many years ago, and has also been released in many portions of the eastern United States. It is now extensively bred on many private and State Game Farms. The Ring-neck, however, has become mixed with the so-called English Pheasant,which has also been introduced into this country, until pure strains are difficult to find. This Pheasant is hardy and thrives in spite of cold weather and deep snow, especially if food is provided. It is regarded by sportsmen as a splendid, active game bird, and, in many districts where it has been released, has come to constitute a great asset to the game-bird resources of the country. In a wild state it nests on the ground beneath cover. Classification: Order: Gallinae. Family: Phasianidae. Scientific name: Phasianus torquatus. Range: China, introduced into Europe, portions of the United States and Canada. No. 6 from set of 50 Winter Birds of the Northeastern United States. Published by the National Association of Audubon Societies, 1974 Broadway, New York City. Price per set, in a box, $1.00, post paid
