MASTERPIECE OF NATURE: PEACOCK


                                   
Dear children, Peacock or peafowl is one of the most beautiful birds on our earth. Peacocks are mainly found in India. Peacocks are of many different colors like blue, black, green and the rarely found, white peacock! Peacock is the national bird of India. They are known and admired for their beauty and elegance in the whole world. 

Besides India, they are also found in Australia and many other parts of the world. The male is called peacock and they have long colorful feathers with eye like marks on them. It can expand and spread its feathers like a fan. The feathers on it's head are called crest feathers.The female is called peahen, their feathers are short and brown colored. Peacocks are famous for their dance during rainy season when they spreads their tail feathers and dance. Their expanded feathers look very beautiful and their dance is just amazing.Rainy season fills them with joy. 
Peacocks are omnivorous animals. They eat flowers, grass, vegetables, cracked corn and wheat as well as small snakes, lizards and insects. They are very popular in zoo and parks. Peacocks can fly also!

  2. This is an awesome entry, Auntie!

    I didn't know they were the National Birds of India, but it seems natural a beautiful country is represented by a beautiful bird! At least it is not a bird of prey, as the bald eagle, also a very pretty bird but very aggressive too!

    The interesting detail is that the one dressed in best feathers is the male!! :)) Show a very modest female!! Even if they are very choosy when are wooed! :))))
