  • The Small Speckled Pheasant found in the Rocky Mountains, and differ from the large black and white pheasant only in point of size, and somewhat in colour. it is scercely half the size of the other; assosiates in much larger flocks and is also very gentle. the black is more predominate and the dark brown feathers less frequent in this than the larger species. the mixture of white is also more general on every part of this bird. it is considerably smaller than our Pheasant and the body reather more round. in other particulars they differ not at all, from the large black and white Pheasant. this by way of distinction I have called the Speckled Pheasant. the flesh of both these species of party coloured Pheasant is of a dark colour, and with the means we had of cooking them were only tolerably flavoured tho 'these birds would be fine well cooked.
