A male Edward's Pheasant
Edwards's Pheasant was first discovered in 1895 in central Annam (now North and South Vietnam). All captive specimens are descended from 15 birds shipped to France in 1923. There is a small population in Vietnam, but otherwise there may be none remaining in the wild.
The clutch size is from 4 to 7 and the incubation period is 22 days.
