The China or Denny Pheasant in Oregon

A brief review by J. A. Allen of a booklet by William T. Shaw on a history of the introduction of Ring-necked Pheasant in Oregon.

Releases of birds into the Willamette Valley of Oregon in the early 1880s represented the first successful introductions of the Ring-necked Pheasant in North America.
