Lady Amherst Pheasants (Chrysolophus amherstiae) are named for Lady Sarah Amherst who first introduced these ornamental pheasants on her estate — near Woburn Abbey, just outside London, England — where they were used for game and breeding.

The bird has a spectacular and unique appearance with a black and white nuchal cape and a red crest, a long grey tail with red, blue, dark green, white and yellow plumage underneath. The Lady Amherst is closely related to the Golden Pheasant, but with yellow eyes and blue-green bare skin around them, a horn-colored bill, and blue-gray legs.

Female Lady Amherst pheasants are similar to the female Golden Pheasant, but with a darker head.
