Chinese Golden Pheasant. My all-time favorite bird. In a huge aviary, in Guangzhou, China, they used to come running by me, and I was totally amazed by their colors and the patterns of their feathers. This picture shows only the head; the rest of the body is even more amazing. I'm sure God painted them just to laugh in the face of evolutionists.
Carolina Parakeet. Once abundant, this extinct species nested in large colonies in the cypress swamps in the South Atlantic and Gulf States. They migrated up the Mississippi, and Missouri Rivers to the Platte and regularly to Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nebraska, and in the east to Pennsylvania. Hunted for their feathers and slaughtered as pests, the last reported sighting in the wild was a small flock in Florida in 1920.
