Pheasants with white head.

Based on pheasant populations in the area, I believe he either saw a Reeves Pheasant, or, more likely, a Reeves x Common Pheasant.

There is a disproportionate amount of males to females in the Reeves population so it is likely he saw a lot of male Reeves.
Unless they were crossbred I don't know without a pic. Here's a few pics of what they may have been.
Pic 1 and 2 Reeves pheasant


Pic 3 Elliots pheasant not really a white head

Pic 4 Cheer pheasant not really a white head

Pic 5 Lady Amherst, doesn't have a white head but has a white Cape.

Most likely it was a Reeves pheasant.
