    It was a sunny afternoon and I got my camera out...conned my silver into doing the "drum roll" with his wings! I'll also put the picture of my Lady Amherst courting his girl...notice how his feathers shield his eyes! Enjoy!
    Looking at me like "I'm not gonna do it!"

    Great looking birds!! You saw my list on FB, so you know they are the best!!

    Monarc - http://ibc.lynxeds.com/species/silver-pheasant-lophura-nycthemera - Scroll down to the video by John Corder taken at Cleres. It is a cool display, most Lophura males do it and if you have more than one in surrounding aviaries, they will start right after each other.
