*the pheasant is a well-known gamebird, among those of more than regional importance perhaps the most widespread and ancient one in the whole world. The common pheasant is one of the world's most hunted birds; it has been introduced for that purpose to many regions, and is also common on game farms where it is commercially bred.

 

while common pheasants are able short-distance fliers, they prefer to run.

 

if startled however, they can suddenly burst upwards at great speed, with a distinctive "whirring" wing sound.
