And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

Kalij Pheasant

This beautiful Kalij Pheasant male was filmed at Baan Song Nok, near Kaeng Krachan National Park south of Bangkok. A nice little place to stay with cabins and a bird hide, and run by a little old lady who puts food out for the local forest birds. 

The orange-coloured seeded spike the pheasant feeds on, is not a made seed post, but a weird plant that springs up in the forest.
