One Photo, One Story : The Rare Golden Pheasant
The Golden Pheasant (Chinese Pheasant) is one of the most beautiful bird in the world. It is also highly intellegent. Chinese people believe the bird is a sign of good luck and prosperity.
The one in the picture is a male pheasant with bright golden head, vivid scarlet breast, and red-tipped crest.
I took the picture when visiting “House of Pandas” in Taman Safari or Safari Park, a wild life conservation and animal theme Park in Cisarua, West Java. It is located 1800 meters above the sea, the daily temperature is 15-34 degrees celcius.
