This plastic contraption has been purposely affixed to this pheasant's beak to stop him from looking straight ahead. I am not sure why. Is it to keep him from flying? Is it to keep him from pecking other birds? In any case, this bird has escaped from the barnyard and his blinders put him at risk from every dog and coyote in the bosque. He jumped into a ditch to get away from us, and I am not sure he even will be able to fly or climb out of it. Good Luck little fella.
