Amazing video shows one of China's most beautiful and reclusive birds, the Golden Pheasant.

The birds were spotted foraging in central China's Ganshan National Forest Park. The brightly colored birds are native to forests in mountainous areas.

They are a protected species in China, as their population numbers are decreasing.

They were recently named, along with the white swan, as the city birds of Sanmenxia.
