Greater Bay Area Series | Episode 6: Silver pheasant

Silver pheasants, Guangdong's official provincial bird, are found across the Greater Bay Area. As spring turns into summer, the silver pheasant ushers in the mating season. The male circles the female in a time-honored courtship ritual. Wherever she goes, he follows, until he gets the nod. They blissfully fly off to live a secluded life in the woods.
