    Reminds me of hunting season, pheasnat hunting. They fly on the cold days, and run on the warmer days.

    Ticks, your pheasants are beautiful! I love the pictures of the hens.

    In answer to the question do they fly, and roost in low banches:

    Yes, they fly very well. I had a female fly away I had just gotten. It was night so she flew up into a 15' high branch. I could see where she went. She stayed the night there. Way too high for me to get to.
