The Indian Peafowl – The definition of Beauty and Grace

Good Morning with this beautiful graceful National Bird of India ♥


“Good Morning with this beautiful graceful National Bird of India <3 http://tinytotsinternational.com/ The Beautiful Peacock, Pavo cristatus (Linnaeus), the national bird of India, is symbolic of qualities like beauty, grace, pride and mysticism. Peacocok is a colourful, swan-sized bird, with a fan-shaped crest of feathers, a white patch under the eye and a long, slender neck. The peacock is the name for a male peafowl. Female peafowl are called peahens and baby peafowl are called peachicks. Peafowl are part of the pheasant family. The male of the species is more colourful than the female, with a glistening blue breast and neck and a spectacular bronze-green train of around 200 elongated feathers it is able to expand its tail erect like fan as ostentatious display. The female is brownish, slightly smaller than the male, and lacks the train. These birds do not sound as beautiful as they look they have a harsh call. The elaborate courtship dance of the male, fanning out the tail and preening its feathers is a beautiful sight. The peacock is widely found in the Indian sub-continent from the south and east of the Indus river, Jammu and Kashmir, east Assam, south Mizoram and the whole of the Indian peninsula. Found wild in India (and also domesticated in villages) they live in jungle lands near water. They were once bred for food but now hunting of peacocks is banned in India. It is fully protected under the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972."
