This large terrestrial pheasant inhabits the hill forests and is considered a monotypic hard bird because it can tolerate both cold and hot weather. They make nests on higher ground. They respond aggressively toward other pheasants, animals, and humans during their breeding season. Guinness World Records 2008 edition has mentioned this pheasant for having the longest natural tail feather of any other bird species.
Only 2000 Reeve’s pheasant remain in the world. Species have become threatened due to habitat loss and overhunting for their attractive tail plumes and food. Aviculture, which includes raising and breeding birds for conservation and awareness campaigns to protect their habitat, is pretty common.
