WEST SEATTLE BIRDS: Pheasant sightings

Quick bird break – two pheasants! For all the bird photos we’ve published over the years, this is the first time we’ve featured a Ring-necked Pheasant; two people sent us photos – the one above is from Stewart L., who saw it at Don Armeni Boat Ramp (the other sighting was near Alki Point). Below, a pheasant we’ve seen a few times over the years – Josh Niederberger photographed this Golden Pheasant near Hillcrest/Genesee:

Thanks again to everyone who shares bird photos – we have some others in queue for a gallery next weekend!

    Where has the West Seattle turkey gone too? No sightings in a while.

    Is the West Seattle Turkey still around?  Haven’t seen any posts in awhile.

    I saw one in South Park today, strutting down Rose St towards the Duwamish River.  One cool character..

    yesterday as I was putting my camera gear into my car, a man asked me if I could look at his cell phone photos that he had taken of a bird he wanted to know if I could identify.    Much to my surprise he had taken a picture of a pheasant, from what I saw not good detail and brown… but there was no mistaking the tail angle of a pheasant or the strut of one (he also had a video).  North of Marination, it crossed the street going west even having the courtesy of using the crosswalk before walking down the sidewalk

Sorry, comment time is over.
