Default Feeding the peacocks

Pam's favorite campsite is near Santa Paula where wild peacocks roam.

Didn't know that the males shed their colorful tail feathers every year.

G'day Walter

Aahhh mate - it's not often one manages to get 2 good lookin' birds in the same frame ~ but you've managed it this time

Peacocks - yes they are wonderful birds to look at and admire - and on those occasions when we can get close & personal, it's beaut to photograph them in their colourful glory

One thing we didn't know, Phil, is that the males shed their tail feathers every year. Since it was November they couldn't display those magnificant feathers for us.

G'day Walter

Which explains how I occasionally come across 'lost & found' things like this ...
