I live near Bristol Fish and Game and I have had a great variety of colorred pheasants at my feeders as well as the dark ring necks.  Knowing that they were released birds I never bothered to speciate them or count them.  I don't know if these birds are appropriate for Dave's list or not but since he asked for exotics, I'll post them if I see them.

  Regarding the pheasants: I am a fly fisherman and member of the Wallingford 
Rod @ Gun Club where we have a small lake that we keep stocked with Rainbow, 
Brown and Brook Trout. We also have lots of land that we stock with pheasants. 
This year I noticed that our holding pen for the birds contained many black 
pheasants, which I had never noticed before. I am not a hunter and don't know the 
particulars of why we have these birds, but we obviously got them from a 
breeder. The conclusion is that we will be seeing a lot more black pheasants in 
the wild that were raised in captivity.
