Playing Dead

This was like the funniest thing I had seen in a long time...a pheasant playing dead!  We were just driving along a country road and saw this pheasant in the field.  When we got close to it, it flattened itself down into the snow.  Once it knew that I was going to approach and take its picture...off it flew.  They sure are fast birds! Never before have I seen a bird do this.  Is this something they normally do?  Maybe some of you hunters out there would know.  Sorry for the poor photo, had to shoot fast.
