This was taken at the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge in Ridgefield,WA. There is a four mile auto route that drives around one section of the refuge where you can see all kinds of birds and critters at various times of the year. I was actually looking for something else when I just happened to look outside of my window and down toward the ground. This pheasant was right next to the car. I parked and turned off my engine and took quite a few shots of him, and he did not budge.
