Impeyan Pheasant

Impeyan Pheasant (Lophophorus Impeyanus), sometimes known by its native name, Monaul, from the Himalayas and Assam. The dark plumage of the male has a brilliant metallic gloss of varying hues, and he has a peacock-like crest. The popular and specific names refer to the fact that Lady Impey tried, unsuccessfully, to domesticate the bird in England. It has, however, bred in confinement.
