(Chrysolophus amherstiae)

This pheasant species has a very large range throughout China and Myanmar and can be found in forested areas and wooded hills, bamboo thickets, dense shrubby areas and secondary growths. The Lady Amherst’s Pheasant is a very shy species, rarely seen outside the thick vegetation it inhabits.  

Threats to species:

The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and fragmentation and unsustainable levels of hunting for food.
