Temminck’s Tragopan

Male Temminck's tragopan

As you can see the from this picture the male Temminck’s tragopan is a beautiful bird. He is able to ‘inflate’ the blue skin under his throat when displaying to the females.

Unusually for pheasants they nest above ground and the chicks are able to fly when just a few days old.

In captivity they are generally bold and our pair readily take food from the hand.
