Yes, pretty unusual.....

....for up here.  To my knowledge, Pheasants have never been stocked in this are (northern Maine).  There are some folks who raise them, and this guy may have been an escapee.  Some of these captive birds might be provided to some of the hunting lodges in the area too, and he may have slipped away.  Its been a rough winter and he looks to be in great shape though, so perhaps he just got out of a pen recently.
