Thought it was a chicken....then it took of flying.
by Brad Malone
I saw this bird across the street at a neighbors house and thought that maybe one of his chickens escaped. As I approched it, the bird bedded down as if to hide from me. When I got to within about 5 feet from it, it jumped up and took off running. I was able to snap a picture of it with my phone before it got too far away. Then, it took off like a quail or pheasant. What is it??!! It is about 10-12 inches tall with black spots on its back. Comments
It might be a female pheasant.
