248A2087 ringneck pheasents

'snowy' pheasents.....so my flickr friend steve hamilton emailed me after noticing on ebird there was a snowy owl in my area......took a roadtrip and this was as close as I came !

 

game birds can have a tough time in the snow digging to find enough seed to survive.....pheasents typically do okay however bobwhite quail can really suffer getting through heavy snow to find food especially if the snow crusts over with ice...
