Meet Jungle Gardens Resident, a White Peacock
Click on photo for the details of his face.
Peafowl are resplendent birds of the pheasant family, Phasianidae (order Galliformes). Strictly, the male is a peacock, and the female is a peahen; both are peafowl.
The White Peacock is frequently mistaken for an albino, but it is a colour variety of Indian Blue Peacock. Its white colour makes it looks really magnificent and elegant
What you can not see in my photos, is the fact this was one angry peacock. I wish you could hear the sound of his rattling quills, talk about the rattle of sabers, he had it. For some reason he had taken offense at a seagull. Did you know they attack? Squawk loudly? Peck? Use there spurs? they do and they can. I carefully left him after snapping these photos. He IS beautiful to look at, but I would not want him in my yard.
