    Ok so today I awoke to find another one of these birds in my yard. This one seems to look a bit different . It was unfortunately found deceased . The head was taken and the rest was left . I am sad I was not able to help this guy . Had I known he was around I surely would have saved him from the dangers of the outdoors. This birds appearance however is slightly different from the first which makes me wonder if I am possibly wrong about the species for the first bird . The bird I found today had the red legs and very long tail but the color is very different it is more grayish with white underneath . It also has an iridesent coloring around it’s neck . Any ideas what it is or does that change anyone’s mind about the first bird that I found

    I think I cracked my own case .I believe I found a pigeon not another pheasant. I guess my garden is very attractive this year

    Post a pic and we can see.If it's head is missing it was more then likely an owl that got it.No your 1st bird is a sliver pheasant male,100% sure.
