Edwards' Pheasant, also known as the Vietnamese Pheasant, is a species of pheasant that is native to Vietnam and the surrounding region. It is considered to be one of the most threatened pheasant species, and is considered to be endangered in the wild.
Edwards' Pheasants are known for their distinctive appearance, which includes a striking black crest on the male and a rich chestnut-colored plumage. They are also known for their shy and elusive behavior, and are typically found in dense forests and other areas with heavy vegetation.
In the wild, Edwards' Pheasants feed on a variety of foods including seeds, insects, and other small animals. They are considered to be solitary birds, and only come together during the breeding season to mate.
While Edwards' Pheasants are not commonly raised for food, there have been efforts to breed and conserve this species in captivity, particularly in zoos and aviaries. This is due to the species' declining populations in the wild, which are largely attributed to habitat loss and other environmental factors.
