This one is inspired from my recent trip to Uttarakhand. This pheasant in perhaps the one with least colors. Pheasants are extremely shy, and hide in bushes and shrubs when they hear people. Hence they are difficult to click in a clear setting. Thus while I did spot them multiple times I wasn't able to get a clear shot at all. So painting it is, based on a picture clicked by a friend.
Hopefully More Himalayan birds to follow soon!! Title: Cheer Pheasant
