    that is beautiful, thank you for sharing the photos, cuz I have never seen something like that. Question from a person that knows nuttin' bout peacocks, why does the 'non=pied peacock' not have the big plumes with the traditional looking 'eyes' in the feathers? is he just a young bird? He is gorgeous and I love his plummage.

    twister- Yes that is a yearling peacock. When he is two he will look about like this:

    Some two year olds are more mature looking and have full trains though, my two year old only has one eye feather but when he sheds his two year old train he will start growing the feathers everyone is familiar with which is that of a three year old or older peacock.[​IMG]
