This just in! Clair, of First Portland Episode Fame, sent two pictures from her brother of Hank the Pheasant's capture:
I was picturing more of a scene out of a Howard Hawks noir: a dark and winding road, the squeal of tires, the flash of headlights, a bird bleeding on the shoulder. This looks much more pleasant for the pheasant.
If you haven't caught it already, you can watch part 2 of Clair's date with Al (and Hank) here.
