The pheasant is a species of bird, related to the peacock. Pheasants have a distinctive plumage, and were particularly vulnerable to the Vermillious, Verdimillious and Incendio spells. Pheasant could also be hunted for sport, and are eaten mostly by the upper class elite. Horace Slughorn brought a lunch of pheasant with him aboard the Hogwarts Express on 1 September, 1996, and shared it with members of the Slug Club.
