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
