Description
Hackett has captured the elegance of Indian Peafowl with their iridescent plumage and distinctive crests. The male peacock possesses the long train and is best known for his extravagant tail covert feathers that he displays in a fan-like manner during courtship. Peafowl are members of the pheasant family and they nest on the ground and roost in trees. The peacock is the national bird of India.
