The Grey Peacock-pheasant or Polyplectron bicalcaratum is also called the Burmese Peacock-pheasant, is a large bird as a member of the order Galliformes. It is the national bird of Myanmar and its habitat is the lowland and hill forest of bangladesh, Northern India, and the Southeast Asia in which Thailand has a perfect habitat where I found it. The food selection of the Grey Peacock-pheasant consists mainly of seeds, termites, fruits and invertebrates. The female usually lays two eggs.

Mae Wong is really a fantastic place to find this bird and other amazing birds as well. It is cold there and quite a drive going to the top. Brian Hewitt and I prospected for the Crested Kingfisher which did not show so we went up to get this lovely large bird which was a great addition to my collection.
