Among game-birds there are the quail (uzura), the heathcock (ezo-rachO), the ptarmigan (ezo-raicho or ezo-yama-doni), the woodcock (hodo-shigi), the snipe (ta-shigi) with two special species, the solitary snipe (yama-shigi) and the painted snipe (tama-shigi)and the pheasant (kiji).
The golden pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus) is locally established in the United States, as appear to be other pheasants of less common species.
The game birds include the ruffed grouse, quail and English pheasant (which have increased rapidly under protection), besides woodcock, snipe, many species of ducks and a few Canada geese.
The pheasant derives its name from the ancient name (Phasis) of the Rion.
The beasts and fowls of warren were the hare, the coney, the pheasant and the partridge.
