Blue or Indian Peafowl

Pavo cristatus

I am the famed Indian Peafowl. The male peafowl is known as a peacock, India’s national bird, while the females are called peahens.

The beautiful colored tails we are famed for are characteristics of the male peafowl, the peacocks, and the colors always look different with every change in angle due to the reflection of light on it. The colorful display is a way to attract females for mating purposes.
