Temminck’s Tragopan cock is an extremely colorful bird, mostly a rich orange smothered in whitish ocelli.

He has a beautiful blue face that is surrounded by black.

He, like all Tragopans, has an incredible display and can inflate a pair of “horns” from his crown and a bib from his throat.

These birds can be found at high altitudes in the Eastern Himalayas, Southern Tibet, Myanmar, and other nearby areas.

Its range extends from northeast India to northwest Vietnam, Tibet, and China’s northern provinces.

Temminck’s tragopan’s natural diet in the wild consists primarily of berries, grass, and plants.

They are fed pheasant pellets in captivity, as well as fruit and berries and a few grains.

The birds will breed in their second year, with the hen beginning to lay eggs in April.

Typically, 2–4 eggs are laid in a clutch, with up to 12 eggs laid in a season. In most cases, incubation lasts 28 days.
