The male golden pheasant – real name ‘chrysolophus pictus’ – has a magnificent red plumage but it is its golden crest makes it resemble the bird-brained politician.

As well as its distinctive hairdo, the pheasant turn heads with its lengthy tail – making up two-thirds of its metre-long body.

This particular stuffed specimen lives in Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.
SWNS_TRUMP_BIRD_06Golden pheasants are common in their native Western China but, unlike Mr Trump‘s popularity, numbers of the birds are declining.

They are hard to spot in their natural forest habitat, so little is known about their behaviour in the wild.

They can mainly be found in East Anglia and on the Isles of Scilly.
