Excerpt from Pheasants Their Natural History and Practical Management
Then came a change. It was realised that the pheasant was not only a bird for the kitchen, but could use his wings that he was. Indeed, one of the finest and fastest of ﬂiers among British game birds. And it was discovered that there were certain conditions under which he would ﬂy and others under which he would not. You could not make him ﬂy away from home. If he had become accustomed to being fed or finding his food in a particular covert or part of a covert, he might be driven away from it, but he would only go relue tautly he would run away from it, or would ﬂy a short distance near the ground, but he would not take a high and prolonged ﬂight. Why should be? For his natural idea would be to get back there as soon as possible.
