The Imperial Pheasant, found in the forests of Vietnam & Laos

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.
