Birds of a feather?

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By REUTERS

A pheas­ant has be­come a star at­trac­tion at a Chi­nese sa­fari park af­ter vis­i­tors said its golden head feath­ers re­sem­bled US Pres­i­den­tDon­ald Trump’s fa­mous blond coif.

A pic­ture of a five-yearold golden pheas­ant called “Lit­tle Red” went vi­ral this week af­ter a jour­nal­ist from the east­ern Chi­nese city of Hangzhou pointed out the “strik­ing sim­i­lar­ity” be­tween the male bird and Trump, ac­cord­ing to Peo­ple’s Daily.

The re­sem­blance doesn’t stop at the feath­ers, said Gao Hongqiang, the park’s head bird feeder.

“Af­ter com­par­ing it with the pho­tos ... we’ve found that not only are their hair­styles alike, their eyes’ ex­pres­sions are pretty sim­i­lar,” Gao told Reuters.

Vis­i­tors at the park said they saw the sim­i­lar­ity.

“I think this pheas­ant is very beau­ti­ful and Trump’s hair­style in the US pres­i­den­tial elec­tion sprang to mind when I first saw the bird,” Jin Huofeng, 34, said.

“I won­der if Trump’s hair­styl­ist was in­spired by the golden pheas­ant.”
