An Original Resident?

On a Web site about watchable wildlife developed by Travel Montana, clicking the “What to Watch” tab takes us to a page that invites us to “Meet Montana’s Original Residents.” That page links to a brief account of the Ring-necked Pheasant, a nonnative introduced resident of Montana. The account grudgingly notes that:
Ring-necked pheasants are not native Montanans. They were imported from China to the United States in the mid-1800’s, but that hasn’t stopped them from making themselves right at home in Montana.
