Galliformes. Pheasants have marked differences between the
male and female birds and are considered to be dimorphic.
The male bird is usually larger than the female and has a
longer tail. Pheasants are omnivorous birds that eat insects
and seeds. The male bird doesn't assist in rearing the young
There are thirty-five species of Pheasant in eleven genera.
The best known Pheasant is the Common Pheasant, which has
been introduced as feral populations in farm operations.
