Blue Peacock


Blue Peacock (Pavo cristatus)

Vain like a peacock?

Peacocks are kept in parks due to their gorgeous plumage for 3000 years. Especially eye-catching are their tail feathers, which are decorated with eye patches and can be erected into a fan. Peacocks also display their tail feathers in their natural habitat, the woods and jungles of Southeast Asia. They tremble and rattle with their feathers. This way they want to impress hens as well as rivals and thus show their health, strength and beauty.
