Lady Amherst

This species is found on high mountain slopes living in the heavey bamboo and thorny thickets. Males are vocal, and are frequently heard amidst the heavey fog as they remind other males that this is their territory. The display is elaberate, cape faned, cheek patch enlarged, and tail spread to one side, the male dances back and forth around a visiting hen. Breeding season begins in early April and hens nest on the ground.

Tips for Tying with Lady Amherst Feathers

The Lady Amherst pheasant possesses a similar form as the golden with crests, tippets, etc. Tail feathers can be used in married and mixed wing salmon flies.

The tippets are used for wings on such flies as the Lady Amherst and the Lang Syne that uses green dyed tippets. Besides wings, the tippets can be used for body veilings, tails and hackles on grub patterns.

The red crests make for great body veilings, tails and toppings. Single tail fibers used as horns on salmon flies make striking contrasts against the wings. The green, golden and red of the body plumage offer the creative tier and crafter with myriad possibilities.

Full Skins

     
Lady Amherst - Male $0.00  

Here is an adult Grey male, I guessing 3 to 4 years old. This bird is just coming out of a moult, the color is vibrant and the edges of the feathers are fresh.

With game farm raised birds, the best quality feathers come from just such a bird. No wear marks from rubbing on the wire or fading from the sun.

The tail has not grown all the way in, but as you can see, the covers and tail quills are long enough to any pattern.
