Palawan Peacock Pheasant
The most beautiful of the Peacock Pheasants
These striking birds are fount only in low altitude thick forest on the Philippine island of Palawan. Their future is in jeopardy due to heavy forest cutting, but fortunately there are a fair number in captivity.
They attain adult plumage in their second year. A clutch consists of 2 eggs, which are incubated for 18-19 days.
