12 Days of Birdorable: Nine Lady Amherst's Pheasants

On the ninth day of Birdorable, my true love gave to me… 9 Lady Amherst's Pheasants! Our 12 Days of Birdorable continues today with yet another brand new bird species, a beautiful bird of the pheasant family.

Nine Lady Amherst's Pheasants

The line Nine Ladies Dancing in the song “The 12 Days of Christmas” simply refers to, well, nine ladies dancing!

Lady Amherst's Pheasants are native to China, with sustaining feral populations introduced elsewhere in the world.

This is the ninth day of our 12 Days of Birdorable holiday event. Previously featured were:
