Beautiful backyard visitors may signal improvement to park habitat

These beautiful male pheasants - a green pheasant and a ring-necked pheasant -  were photographed in a backyard by homeowner Bob Eicholzin. Eicholzin lives a housing development called The Outpost just south of the Hollywood Reservoir.  

As many as seven different pheasants have been seen in the area and hopes are that some of their colorful friends may still be living in parts of Griffith Park. Pheasants haven't been seen in the park for almost a decade and concerns have been growing that human impacts to the park may have caused yet another species to disappear from park habitat.
