the peacocks are the most attractive birds.it shows very pleasing look to our eyes. i belong to india.this is our national bird.it is symbolic qualities like beauty,grace,pride and mysticism. There are many different kind of peacocks including indian blue,black shouldered,congo,green and white peacocks. white peacocks are the same as the Indian blue in size and behaviour,but are white. the male of the species is more colurful than female.the female is brownish,slightly smaller than male and lack of train

thanks for the info about peacocks, I must say taht I learned quite a lot from your post! I didn't even know that the peacock was India's national bird..I do agree with you that it's such a beautiful bird! One of the most elegant, if I must say so...

thank you raeine, also i would like to give some info.. about this...... these birds do not sound as beautiful as they look.they have a harsh call. if u say something about this elegant beauty,this discussion will be more interesting too....

I do remember seeing a peacock at a zoo when I was a kid & I really amrveled at its beauty, especially of how wonderful its feathers looked spread out...imagine also my surprise before when I learned (but should've figured out I guess!) that a peacock is the male of the species & the females are called peahens...hehe...& males are normally more attractive than females in order to call more attention when they seek their mates, right? Anyhow, just gotta say that the peacock's color (how it even looks iridiscent at times) has got to be one if not one of the most beautiful birds I've seen =)

We have some on the way to work and sometimes we get to see them. My favorite are the white pair they have. They are so pretty and I have not seen the white before these. My aunt had some when I was young but back then they scared me as they would get very loud sometimes!

yes, peacock is a beautifful bird. But you must see the bird from Papua Island in Indonesia called Cendrawasih. I think it is the most seautifful bird on the world. Sorry, I already search the pic, but I cannot find it..:(

I saw peacocks once in a zoo. It was indeed a beautiful animal. With the colourful feather spread out, i don't think there is any other bird which is prettier than it.
