Released only as a booklet of twenty, the pheasant stamp features one of America's most handsome birds - the male ring-necked pheasant. Until 1881, the "common pheasant," as it is sometimes referred to, was anything but. A native of China, the ring-neck was successfully introduced when Owen H. Denny, consul general at Shanghai, shipped 21 of the birds to his brother's farm in Corvallis, Oregon. Today, the ring-necked pheasant, with its colorful plumage of iridescent greens, purples, and copper is found throughout the northern continental U.S. and lower Canada.
