Pheasant type bird in my yard

by Marianne
(Post Falls Idaho)

We have had a larger size bird in our yard that looks like a mix between a pheasant and a large quail. I am not sure if it was someones pet or if its wild. It showed up about 2 weeks ago and doesn't seem to mind people. The bird is the size of a small cat and is light brown in color with dark spots and a dark head. I will try and get pis tomorrow. Any ideas on what it could be? If I saw a pic of one I could identify it. Thank you

Hello,

where were the spots? what was the bird doing? have you seen it eating and what was it feeding on? Have you seen it fly and if so what type of flight does it have?
