Distributed in mountain area at middle and upper elevation, the bird has been seen at an elevation of 3,850m. The bird occupies the highest habitat among all pheasants in Taiwan. Mikado Pheasant and Swinhoe's Blue Pheasant are both endangered species in the red book of WSPA International. Usually inhabits in coniferous/broad-leaf forests or coniferous forests on steep slopes, it feeds on fern, corm, berries and insects. These solitary and secretive birds are strongly territorial. Thus, it is uncommon to see two pheasants appear at the same time, except during the breeding season. Mikado Pheasant build their nests in tree holes or on the ground with dry leaves and dead branches.
