    Oops! This is a male Palawan Peacock Pheasant, (Polyplectron napoleonis) not an Imperial Pheasant. The Imperial Pheasant has red patches of skin on its face, and glossy dark fathers with a blue crest. The Palawan Peacock Pheasant has an erectile crest, a white stripe over the eyes and highly iridescent metallic green and black plumage.

    The Imperial Pheasant, found in the forests of Vietnam & Laos. Jean Theodore Delacour, an American ornithologist (1890-1985) with a penchant for discovering some of the rarest birds in the world, first discovered the Imperial Pheasant in 1923. Other than the two captured by Delacour, no other Imperial Pheasants were found again until 1990. The bird is not a true species, but a naturally occurring hybrid between the Vietnamese Pheasant & the Silver Pheasant.
