    Hello, We had peacock show up at our house this summer (Morrow, OH -about 30 miles from Wilmington). We've been feeding him and he was staying on the deck during the day and roosting in a tree in the front yard this summer. What do we need to do to keep him safe and healthy thru the winter? We have a barn but he has no interest in that. He has shifted his roosting tree to one near a creek but he is now much more likely to encounter raccoon, opossums and coyotes now that he's farther from the house. We have contemplated giving him to someone who could better care for him if we can't and if can catch him.
    Thanks for any advice.

    Mary

    Let him enjoy the life he chose. Make sure that he has food and water available and when he needs more shelter he will find it. Start feeding him near the open barn door, he probably won't use it but the option will be there.
