Nature's beautiful creation: Peacock presents a strikingly beautiful appearance

The males of the species, also known as peacocks (Pavo cristatus), present a strikingly beautiful appearance that is well-appreciated throughout the world. They can grow to a length of 195 to 225 cm from tip of the beak to the end of the train and weigh an average of 5 Kg. The peacock’s head, neck and breast are iridescent blue in colour. They have patches of white around the eyes.

They have a crest of upright feathers on top of the head which are short and tipped with blue feathers. The most notable feature in the peacock is the extravagantly beautiful tail, which is also known as the train. The train is fully developed only after 4 years of hatching. These 200 odd display feathers grow from the back of the bird and are part of enormously elongated upper tail coverts.

National Bird of India - Peacock dances in Jawai, Rajasthan

The national bird of India is the Indian Peafowl (Pavo cristatus) commonly termed as a Peacock. Vividly colourful and exuding oodles of grace, the Indian Peafowl commands a lot of attention.

The peacock and its colours are synonymous with Indian identity. It is indigenous to India and Sri Lanka but now features in countries all over the world. Peacocks are sometimes domesticated and kept in the garden for aesthetic purposes.

The Indian peafowls are best known for the beautifully elegant display of feathers the evolution of which is believed to be driven by sexual selection. The peacocks spread their train in the shape of a fan and quiver them during the courtship display.

These 200 odd display feathers grow from the back of the bird and are part of enormously elongated upper tail coverts. The colours are a result of elaborate microstructures that produce a sort of optical phenomena. Each train feather ends in an oval cluster bearing an eyespot or ocellus that is extremely eye-catching. The back wings are greyish brown in colour and are short and dull. The Indian Peacock’s thighs are buff coloured and they have a spur on the leg above the hind.
