White eared pheasant

White eared pheasants are a large and bold species from the wooded mountain slopes of China. Their wild population is declining as their forest habitats are cleared. Unlike the other species of eared pheasant these birds only have short tufts on their head.

The male can be identified by the spurs on his legs.

These birds use their powerful beaks to dig for food such as bulbs and insects.
