Pheasant Release in DWNRA

I was sitting at my work computer on Tuesday, Oct. 27 when I looked up and saw two PGC trucks loaded with bird boxes drive past toward the park lands. I have been wanting to try and photograph a release of the stocked birds for a couple seasons now and couldn't resist the temptation so I leapt from my seat, grabbed the camera gear and headed out. I caught up to them at the entrance to the park where they were stopped and waiting for the WCO. The birds in the crates were vocal and that stimulated a cock bird that had been previously released to let out a few clucks in the nearby brush! The WCO arrived shortly and we all headed a short drive to the first release site. I think I did all right as things happened rather quickly. I did a little "chimping" and surmised that I had some acceptable results and expressed my gratitude and headed back to the office. Hope you enjoy!

Very nice pics. Especially the one with the cockbird sticking his head outside the crate.
