    We went to visit my wife's birth family (she's adopted) today for Easter. Her aunt / uncle live in a beautiful area and have peacocks.

    We parked out in front of the house, under a pine tree and I heard the loud (and obnoxious) cry of a peacock. I had no idea where it was coming from and after looking all around I looked up.

    This is what I saw almost directly over our car:

    Just amazing to see them way up in the trees like that, and SOOO beautiful!


    Oh, and I can't miss an opportunity to show off the girls:

    Gorgeous pix, Nifty!

    Our landlady keeps peacocks on her farm behind us and they used to come visit all the time. We adopted our Australian Shepherd and the visits stopped but I'll always have those "Kodack Moments" in my mind. We've not had any pred problems since Pepper moved in with us and I'll gladly give up the peacock visits for that. [​IMG]

    Awesome looking peacocks... where are the peahens? Did you see any on nests? Did you grab some eggs for your incubator? .... and mine? LOL
