Yonder Pheasant

 enable images

This is my attempt at a kingfisher and chickadee. I thought "what bird is nice and royal?" and figured the one with "king" in its name would fit. And I wanted the (checks lyrics of song for rank) page to be a bird with a hat, so one with "cap" in its name fit perfectly. 

Explanation: In the song "Good King Wenceslas," the good king asks his page "yonder peasant, who is he?" and I thought "peasant" and "pheasant" were close enough to make a bird version of this song phrase.

K: Yonder pheasant, who is he?
C: He's a quail, my good king.
