PHEASANTS
[ Also see Birds ]

Fesaunt excedeth all fowles in sweetnesse and holsomnesse, and is equall to capon in nourishynge.
      - Sir Thomas Elyot, The Castle of Helth
         (ch. VIII)

The feasant hens of Colchis, which have two ears as it were consisting of feathers, which they will set up and lay down as they list.
      - Pliny the Elder (Caius Plinius Secundus),
        Natural History (bk. X, ch. XLVIII),
        (Holland's translation)

See! from the brake the whirring pheasant springs,
  And mounts exulting on triumphant wings:
    Short is his joy; he feels the fiery wound,
      Flutters in blood, and panting beats the ground.
      - Alexander Pope, Windsor Forest (l. 111)
