    Hi owners of Buford Bronze peacocks,
    I am confused about colours of neck, backplate, train feathers, primaries of Buford Bronze peacocks...Can you please help me...

    Neck
    A) dark greenish blue
    B) greenish brown

    Train feathers, outward from black heart-shape eye, through 3 rings, to tip.

    A) Black>greyish green>greyish green>greyish pink ring>greyish pink tip.
    B) Black>greyish Columbia blue>Sea green>greyish pink>green-brown tip.

    Are primaries same colour as normal IB peacock ???

    I appreciate your help.

    Clinton.

    Hi Deerman,
    Here's my drawing of adult male Buford Bronze peafowl in flight.

    Are the primaries the same hue as in typical Indian peafowl? I've never seen one before but heard that they are a scintillating plum and bronze colour that is impossible to describe.
