My mother in law swore that the peacocks were calling all night very near to the upstairs guest room in our home when she was here last month. Perhaps, they were actually on the roof, as these pictures document they are well capable of reaching. While flying clumsily, they do get the job done, and the peahens have peahen parties of 2 or more, aggregating / assembling for safety in numbers.
|Flying past you, and then trotting off through your neighbor's lawn? I meant to do that!|
This came after I was unloading bags of mulch from my Mazda wagon, when I noticed a peacock male with brilliant plumage eating from my neighbor's lawn. SUDDENLY, his buddy flies past me, beside my garage and over my garbage dumpsters, after grazing in my back yard on fuchsia, seeds & bugs. I am glad I can provide habitat for the massive fowl and the finest nectar drinkers in my neighborhood.
