The golden pheasant is a game bird native to the forests in mountainous regions of western China. The male is much more brightly colored than the female, as in many bird species. In spite of their bright coloring, they are very difficult to spot in their natural habitat. Because of this, little is known of their behaviour in the wild. They mostly feed on grain, leaves and invertebrates. While they can fly, they spend most of their time on the ground, although they do sleep in trees.

The first time I saw a golden pheasant was on the Korean drama "Dae Jang Geum". I thought it was so beautiful! I love the brilliant colors, and I just love pheasants in general. ^-^ So it was fun to draw. It is now available in both my stores, as usual. I hope you all will like it! :D
