one time south of town, i seen a rooster pheasant run across the road, so as i pulled up i stopped and seen a few more pheasants. I got to looking harder and looked in this pine tree, and there were 8-10 pheasants sitting in the tree. I didnt know they would get in the trees, i guess i assumed they were ground dwellers

Put up a piece of plywood in that spot and they have a nesting platform.
You could watch a family of gees grow up, and potentially get attacked if you get too close!

At work they used to nest on top of the buildings
A famous goose that attacked the lunch time walkers was named goose lee
Soon as they walked past his building hed fly down and chase em
Funny as chit

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

In the eighties we used to put a lot of tubs in trees along the Yakima R. for years with local game wardens, they would nest in them every year. Not sure where that program went. Pheasants roost in trees at night everywhere, just like Turkey's

At our work there is a little shack next to our chip bunkers where the controls are for the truck drivers to fill their chip trucks.  Every year a pair of geese nest on that shack and have their chicks.  It is raised off the ground so it's too high for the chicks when they start walking to go off and survive, so someone has to risk their lives from the mama to bring the chicks down.  It's pretty comical at times.

Thats my guess. I once saw a group of 5-7 pheasants on some power lines and thought how weird it was to see them up there. Then saw a coyote trotting along about a min later.
