I had one of these as a pet. They aren't very tame but so beautiful. Mine let me pet him but would fly if I attempted to hold him. What camera do you use for your photography?

If there's a bird today who looks like mesozoic dinosaurs, apart from ostriches and such... Well, it's the common pheasant; here where i live there are some couples which roam the riverbank and when you spot one of 'em between the bushes, well, with those long tail feathers they REALLY look like their ancient ancestors

You should see guinea fowl. They resemble prehistoric creatures as well. The vulturine more than the helmeted variety but still pretty prehistoric.
