Day 317: Something Beautiful—Bornean Peacock-Pheasant

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

On a daily basis, we see the beautiful ways hybrids deliver variations on flowers, produce, people, and other creatures. Somewhere in my overloaded cerebral cortex, I thought I remembered that pheasants were part of the peacock family or vice versa. But upon digging deeper, I found that wasn’t true. Evidentally, they are not. All that aside, the real issue is that I had never know of a bird species called a peacock-pheasant. How one little piece of knowledge can open the door to more spectacular beauty.
