Taking flight with birds for 22 years

The silver pheasant is found in forests, sparse vegetation of evergreen broad-leaved forests and tropical ravine rainforests. It feeds on insects together with the stalks, fruits and seeds of plants. It moves around in pairs or small groups of 3 to 6. It's vigilant and rarely flies. In emergency it will fly to tree branches. Silver pheasants nest on low ground among bushes, with 4 to 6 eggs a brood. The chick matures early and is able to follow its parents on the very day it hatches. Its distribution is in China, Cambodia, Thailand and the Indo-China peninsula.
