    Owners of Midnight peacocks and Purple peacocks,
    I cannot make illustrations of Midnight peacock and Purple peacock, unless I get photoes of peacocks, as members need to see the future illustrations of Purple & Midnight peafowls, because a Midnight peacocks can be mistaken for a Buford Bronze peacock, because of similar colours.
    Also Purple peacock can be mistaken for normal IB peacock.

    Clinton.

    Quote:There should be no mistaking midnight with bronze. Bronze is dark brown/bronze colour, midnight is a darker shade of blue (my avatar has a blue bs on the left and midnight bs on the right). Check out photos under the "please post some pics of your peacocks" by birdboy. Aquaeyes has posted a number of beautiful pics of the bronze and midnight(closer to the end). I have found that purple males have a more pale orange tint to the brown sections of a regualar P. cristatus. As for neck colouring, some have mistaken my purple male for a blue, until they see a blue next to him. For good photos check out Texas peafowl and Amy's Peacock Paradise. Other than that, keep up with the good illustrations.
