    I've done a search on the net but no answers to my question...How far can a peacock call be heard? The only answer I get is..."quite a distance". Anyone have an answer?

    There really is no definitive answer because there are many factors that have to be considered such as air density, weather, any obstructions like trees or buildings, etc. That being said I know my neighbor hears ours a 1/4 mile away and I would guess he can be heard farther than that.

    Not sure how far, but I know up to a mile. One of my neighbor a mile up the road ask if I had peacocks. He said he had heard some. Of course I do have a lot.

    Depends on the wind, sometimes mine have been heard 1/2 mile away and if he screamed from his roosting spot, 100 feet up in a fir tree, probably farther [​IMG]

    Growing up a neighbor over a mile away had them and we could always hear them.

    Mine are still young, but...
    I can hear my neighbor's dog barking through the woods about a mile away so I hope they can hear my peafowl!
