There are an estimated 49 pheasant species, but the common pheasant, the Golden Pheasant, the Reeves’s Pheasant, and the silver pheasant are some of the most well-known types. The Pheasant bird comes from Asia, and it was brought to the United States during the 1880s. Pheasants are able to fly, but they’re clumsy at it and prefer to be on the ground. It is the state bird of South Dakota.
