Cock Pheasant returns

This cock Pheasant was a regular visitor to our garden last winter and indeed continued to visit into May, when finally, taking his nine hens with him, he headed for the fields and hedgerows nearby. In the last two weeks he has returned each afternoon to stand expectant for food by our dining room window. He is currently just completing his late summer moult, his tail almost full length again has been growing at a tremendous rate. This painting shows him in full spring finery!
