they are called " Peafowl ". Also they come in 3 different colors of Blue, Green and Congo; and each of those type of colored birds are found in different parts of the world.
The " Peafowl ", or if you still just want to use the name that we are all accustomed to: " Peacock ", is about 7.5 feet long total, but only 2 feet long in actual body mass. And normally they weigh about 13 pounds. Also, the big brown feathers are a mixture of red and blue colors; and during courtship of the female, the males flare up their long tail and feathers. Then at that time the female " Peahens ", that is usually passive, becomes very selective as to which one to acknowledge. Sound familiar?. Just like our male and female relationship in every day life.
The peacock has beautiful eyes, but the best time to see them is when the male make a grand opening of its tail by fanning it. Also they usually nest on the ground, but like to roost in the tree because they too have enemies like: Lions and tigers that like to eat them, and snakes along with lizards that like to eat their eggs. The peafowl feeds on the ground and looks to eat plants, seeds, flower petals, little insects etc. Well sort of like our chickens that usually feed on the ground as well, and like to eat worms.
The Peacock, What Is It About This Beautiful Animal That Have Us So Dazzled?. But to answer the question as to why they have us so dazzled, it is mostly because of their superb beauty along with their animalistic, elaborate courtship that is all part of us as humans. And to take it further, the peacock is very much a part of our spiritual psyche and this animal goes way back to being important. For example: In India, the peacock is associated with the god Saraswati who is known for: Kindness, compassion, knowledge, patience and benevolence. And also their national bird.
Also, the peacock is associated with the god " Kwan - Yin " in Asia and is an emblem of love there. And Kwan - Yin was given a chance to be immortal and she turned it down, all because she had so much compassion for us humans that she chose to stay mortal and help us with our Spiritual Growth. And then there is Christianity, where the peacock is seen as a symbol of eternal life. Because it partly represents: Immortality, renewal or rebirth along with resurrection.
So you see dear Friend, we just love this bird. And even in America, the company " N B C " uses the peacock for it's famous logo, which was originally created by John Graham in 1956. All because of the many beautiful colors of this bird species, and because back then they started with color programming on Television. And for us Men, we can take a lesson in the elaborate and extravagant ways that the Peacock goes about courtship. And for the Females you all can see that you must always remain a Lady, and be selective in quality - not quantity. By James Dazouloute
