Green Pheasant

Phasianus versicolor


regnum = phylum = Chordata classis = Aves ordo = Galliformes familia = Phasianidae subfamilia = Phasianinae genus = Phasianus species = P. versicolor binomial = Phasianus versicolor binomial_authority = Vieillot, 1817 Phasianus versicolor Male and female.
Uniform color of male and spotted underside of female are characteristic. The Green Pheasant, Phasianus versicolor, also known as Japanese Pheasant, is native to the Japanese Archipelago, to which it is endemic. The male (cock) is distinguished from that species by its dark green plumage on the breast and mantle. The male also has an iridescent violet neck, red bare facial skin and purplish green tail. The female is smaller than male and has a dull brown plumage with dark spots. It is the national bird of Japan. This species is common and widespread throughout its native range. It frequents farmlands and is often seen close to human settlements; it also has been introduced in Hawaii and (unsuccessfully) in North America as a gamebird. Some authorities consider the Green Pheasant a subspecies of the Common Pheasant. Fagiano Okayama football club, a club based in Okayama, Okayama Prefecture, has a mascot based on the Green Pheasant.
