Peacock



It's not every day you see a peacock standing on the side of the road, so when you do, you turn around and go back to get proof. I'm sorry that the photo is not as clear as the video. This peacock was standing near a rural road just north of town. As you can see from the video, he decided not to stick around too long to have his picture taken.

Linking to Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters and the Bird D'Pot.

This is so amazing to me! I don't know why, but no one ever seems to see peacocks wandering around like we do songbirds or ducks. This makes me wonder where they do live and wander about. I wonder if he has escaped from some rich person's yard?

...what show offs they are!

Sandra said...

this is a site I have never seen, a peacock on a road. I have seen them out at our Red Barn flea market, they live there

Great capture...tho I wonder if he was afraid he'd be captured. And now that I think of it, he'd be hard to catch with that tail! And how do people keep them around their property anyway...?

Very photogenic birds.

Hello, love the peacock video. They are beautiful birds. Maybe it escape from a nearby farm. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

It begs the question, why did the peacock cross the road.

Rose said...

He must have had places to go and things to see!

An escapee from a farm?

RedPat said...

Isn't there a town in Florida that is overrun by wild Peacocks? They are really noisy and keep the whole area awake early in the morning.

Adam said...

That's an interesting find.

so cool

Betty Crow said...

Peacocks are a rare sight. They sure are beautiful when they fan that tail.

Anu said...

Hello. Great video.

Linda said...

I've seen them kept in huge cages. Also I think they can run free inside a fence if you clip certain feathers so they can't fly.

Iris Flavia said...

I once met a quite agressive one. Beautiful but I had to run!

Adam Jones said...

They are so colourful, yet so noisy.

I miss hearing the calls at sunset from the peacock that used to live down the street.

Revrunner said...

Reminds of the cassowary that dispatched someone this past week. Beware the peacock!

BeachGypsy said...

Oh he is so handsome! I read that in the old days the rich people kept peacocks on their lawns and plantations and estates, they were a symbol of wealth and prestige.
