Galliformes of the world
« on: April 07, 2021, 06:43:18 AM »
The other day I got to thinking about the park in Walla Walla that had the rare and colorful pheasants in pens by the rose garden. Pioneer Park Aviary I believe. I haven't been there in many years so I don't know how it looks now. Anyway I decided to look up the different species of pheasants they had and found a LOT more than I had ever heard of! I'm gonna post all the pics of the many varieties and names I found. Some are unbelievable! Did you know Australia has a turkey species of its own!? Of course there's also the many "turkeys" South of the border too. Bear with me...

Alot of these species live in areas that get below freezing so it's possible for them to thrive here but they don't reproduce very quickly so you would have to raise them for quite a few years before having enough to do releases. I feel like the Cheer pheasant would do excellent in Eastern Washington around the rye grass and dry hills above the Snake River.

How about the monster grouse known as a Capercaillie! I swear on my life that I came across a group of these on the top of a ridge in the Cascades back in about 2003. Someone had to have released them hoping they would populate.

Black billed Capercaillie
