Don’t let the picture fool you. You are looking at the largest pheasant in the world. This guy (or girl?) is 40 feet high and 40 feet long. I attended a dedication of the pheasant with some co-workers. It was a quirky event, extremely short, which was fine with me because it left us with plenty of time to get ice cream afterwards. The bird requires a surprisingly large amount of money to maintain. The town of Huron, South Dakota, however, uses the big bird as a marketing tool. This is a very popular area for pheasant hunting.
