Partridge type bird
No interactions present.
Sorry...Reeves's, not Reeve's. Named after John Reeves.

Strictly speaking then it would be Reeves' Pheasant... (end pedant mode...) :)
Record your ladybird sightings!
You are correct, if the assumption is that Reeves is a plural noun. If, however, it is considered a singular, as it is a part of a name (referring to one person), then Reeves's would be the correct form of the possessive.
I am happy with the latter, as suggested above.
Life is too short!
what is it that makes this a reeves's.
If you compare the plumage with any of the various plumages of Common Pheasant you will (hopefully) see that all of the plumage differs.
The long tail and the head pattern are the most obvious, but the pattern on the body is also different.
