  1. Beautiful and excotic birds. And also qute chicken I can see now.
    In my country there are no wild peacocks, yet we once hade two walking and yelling in our garden. They had escaped from a farm and it took many weeks for the farmer to catch those yelling beauties. I am not sure if I like them after all those nights with interrupted sleep. ;D
    Have a nice evening!

  3. The chick is adorable! I have to agree with Charlotta, peacocks aren't songbirds. *Ü*

    1. Thanks Lynda. This shot was taken when I visited Baz in September. We visited a place called Brownsea Island, and were quite surprised to find a semi-wild population of peacocks. We came across a peahen with several chicks on the edge of a woodland area.
