Creation: Peacock in Flight

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

Have you ever seen a peacock in full flight?

I haven’t.

The only peacocks I’ve ever seen are in zoos, on the ground or perched in a tree.

Here’s a rare pic of a flying peacock.

Isn’t he magnificent? Makes me think of the mythical phoenix.

The name peacock is actually what we call the male of the Peafowl species. Peafowl are three Asiatic species of flying bird in the genus Pavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae, best known for the male’s extravagant eye-spotted tail, which it displays as part of courtship. The male is called a peacock, the female a peahen, and the offspring peachicks. The adult female peafowl is grey and/or brown. Peachicks can be between yellow and a tawny color with darker brown patches.

Peafowl are forest birds that nest on the ground but roost in trees. They are terrestrial feeders. Peafowl are omnivorous and eat most plant parts, flower petals, seed heads, insects and other arthropods, reptiles, and amphibians.
