Season the pheasants with salt and pepper.
In a dutch oven or casserole, brown the birds slowly on all sides in one-third cup of butter.
Add the garlic, bay leaves, thyme and wine.
Cover and simmer until the meat is tender, about fifteen to thirty minutes.
Transfer the pheasants to a hot platter and keep them warm.
Add the beef gravy to the casserole and cook, stirring with a wire whisk, until smooth.
Remove from the heat and stir in the quarter cup of cold butter.
Pour the sauce over the pheasants and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
