Pheasant on friends’ deck

Aimee Goggins

Friends who live on the back side of Bernal posted this photo of what looks to be a ring-necked pheasant that has been hanging out on their deck for 3 hours this eve and doesn’t seem bothered by their presence.

I’ve never seen a pheasant here and they’d love any insight. Escapee, migrant blown off-course, are they resident in the wild in SF?

Thanks, Aimee

Cool sighting ! The last time I saw a pheasant in SF was in the early 90's in GGP--north side of MLK , just east of the waterfall.
