The Pheasants of this group are fine handsome birds, found in South-eastern Asia and some of the islands.
Both sexes have the side of the head bare to a considerable extent, and both have a thick bushy crest, rather more than one inch in length, composed of feathers which are narrow at the base but become gradually broader as the tip is approached. The tail of the male bird is curved and drooping, the two halves compressed together as in the domestic cock. The tail of the female is shorter and straight, but compressed as in the domestic hen. The male has one immense spur on each leg.
The females of the Pheasants of this group depart from the ordinary rule and are rather handsomely plumage
