Peacocks (and Peahens) everywhere


A couple of years ago, there were two peacocks running up and down our street.  Now I realize they were runaways from the Los Angeles Arboretum.  I went there today and they were everywhere!  There was one attacking a car in the parking lot!  This one was pecking at the glass, trying to get into the gardens.

Look at the glorious plumage on this one.  They sell feathers in the giftshop for $1.50 each.

Yeah, wanted to show the peahen, just so you see the difference.

  1. My great grandfather had a Peacock and a Peahen pair in his garden.
    My mom said that as a little girl that was her best past time to enjoy the birds.
    Have a great day.
