Default The Peacock Strut

We have a fair amount of blue/green peacocks around here. (It is not uncommon for people to raise them in their yards.) And there are even some wild colonies on Longboat Key.

However, the white peacock is not common around here, and I don't recall ever seeing one before.

Here the male peacock is strutting his stuff for the white female peahen.

(Kind of reminds me how we guys always suck in our stomachs on the beach when a pretty girl walks by!!!


Photos to follow.

Hi Edge: we can always count on you to know the animals and educate us.

Are you a biology teacher perhaps, or is animals just a hobby?
