People think the Pheasant Coucal when they see it is a pheasant and it does look like one but its not. I know there are 'common' pheasants considered to be wild pheasants but I would not call them australian pheasants

I have seen wild rings not far from my place but they would be escapees or dumped

I was told by the man at the zoo that the coucal pheasant was a pheasant but that seems to be not true.
