Blue India Peafowl

The first two shots are of "Romeo," who was my very first peacock. Below these are some clearer shots of another Blue India male, "Picasso," showing how the wing pattern differs from that of the Black-shouldered variety.

My old Blue India hen, "Brooklyn"
One day I got a call from the New York City ASPCA. They had found a peacock, they said, sitting on the railroad tracks in Brooklyn. Well, they were half right! It was a peahen, but it was on the tracks in Brooklyn, hence her name.
