    I was at the Aviary today. And I got to see all different kinds of birds! There was so many I lost count! My favorite were the Peacocks that the aviary just had running around freely. I found the oldest one. With the longest train. He was really beautiful and I managed to take some pictures of him I also found a young couple of Peacocks. These were much friendlier and the male ate out of my hand!!! Here are some pics.

    Heres a younger one I found. This one was just a lonely young male. No female [​IMG]

    Well that's interesting. That male appears to be partially black shouldered, and partially barred shouldered. I don't know that I've ever seen that before. Is it rare, or common?



    Great pics..... thanks for sharing! [​IMG]

    I snuck up on my new boy today, so I could get a picture. He's still very shy. Nice pics, Chico!
