Picture of the moment: Golden Pheasant.
Picture of the moment is a weekly series exhibiting pictures from around the world.
The name comes from its golden crest. Males have a golden crest with a hint of red at the tip of it. While the male is so colorful & attractive, the female is very sober as generally the case is.
The Golden Pheasant is one of the most popular of all pheasant species kept in captivity. The adult male is around 100 cm in length, its long tail accounts for two-thirds of the total length.
