Then a loud, very unmusical and very unfamiliar call drew me into the gardens to search out the source. Eventually I found it in dense Portugal Laurels along the eastern maintenance road: an apparent hybrid Golden/Lady Amherst Pheasant! Striking male with golden crown, black throat, scarlet breast and mottled black-and-white capelet.
