My stroll in the garden this afternoon had a pleasant surprise awaiting me. This peacock was gingerly walking in our garden oblivious of its surroundings. It let me capture it in my camera. I did record a few videos too. We have had peacocks visiting us before but it has been months since their appearance again. Here you see it perched high above where are water tank is located.

Do they just roam around freely, or do they belong to anyone?

Peacock is a national bird and no one can own them. With concrete jungles mushrooming everywhere they are displaced.

Peacocks are lovely to look at but their cries are horrible!

I get several birds every single day with their lovely chirps. Peacocks are rare visitors here and so their cry I can put up with.

Peacocks are beautiful but they have a horrible cry, I am always scared when I hear them.

It was a delight for me to see it stroll and then fly up there.

I love to watch them they are some pretty birds when they fan their tails out have you ever seen a albino peacock? I had a neighbor that had some, they are so pretty but they can be a little on the MEAN side. I take it this is a wild peacock I'm looking at here??

I could experience this amazing show by a white peacock at Osaka Zoo. I feel its a very rare occasion to see two different peacocks dancing together.
