Have You Ever Met a Peacock?
It's the Male Who's All Dolled Up
Peafowl are two Asiatic and one African species of flying bird in the genus Pavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae, best known for the male's extravagant eye-spotted tail covert feathers, which it displays as part of courtship. The male is called a peacock, the female a peahen, and the offspring peachicks. Peafowl are forest birds that nest on the ground but roost in trees. They are terrestrial feeders.
