Wordless Wednesday- Colorful but Noisy

 

peacock feather



The area I live in was formerly farmland and home to many peacocks.  When the land was developed, the peacocks stayed, and we gladly welcome them.

However…

It is mating season and oh my gosh...the noise they make. I don’t mind if the peacock wants to strut his stuff in our yard or driveway.  But we were up a lot during the night listening to their calls. Have a listen!

Thankfully, it doesn’t last long, and our gift after the mating season is that the peacocks shed their beautiful feathers wherever they walk.

 

A Few Tidbits

~Peacocks are not born with their beautiful tail feathers

~You wouldn’t know by looking at them, but they can fly! I’ve seen them go from the ground up to a high roof!

~Peacocks (the males) can fake it.  That’s all I’m going to say.

~Peacocks love to stare at themselves in mirrored windows or shiny bumpers.

Hi Kathy - I have co-existed with peacocks twice in my life and developed a fondness for them. They are loud, but they make great watchbirds.

Kathy I remember the mating sounds in the middle of the night. When I lived in Mexico (years ago) my uncle had peacocks and while they were so pretty it sure was loud!!

James Dray - no way!  They're a bit like my pets now. 

Trust me Barbara Todaro the other morning around 2 AM, the thought did occur to me. 

Wayne Martin We couldn't get into our driveway today because a peacock was strutting and wouldn't move.  I got out and tried to get him to move over.

Michael Jacobs you reminded me of the first time I drove in our neighborhood.  I had to stop for what looked like a dozen of peafowl taking their sweet time going down the street.  I saw a resident in their yard and he looked at me, smiled and just shrugged his soldiers!

Donald Urschalitz that is priceless!!!!!  I don't know where you find these!  BTW- went to Leftovers and loved it. 

Sharon Lee it will stop soon (I hope).

Dorie Dillard I am fascinated by their feathers but they are as loud as that YouTube video.

Joe Pryor not like it is during mating season. 

Maria Sapio I can remember the first time I saw them fly.  Awkward is how I would describe it!

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386 I noticed that the peahens seemed more aggressive too.

Gabe Sanders my neighbor has a problem with them on his roof but one is enchanted by his mirrored window on the second floor. 

George Souto me too.  I'll get within a foot of them and want to reach out and pet them but I'm not going to . (call me chicken)

Sheila Anderson I love their feathers and I have one who will come to my back door and peck on my glass. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Oh yes...every house guest we have gets a warning about their noise!

Scott Godzyk I see two white peacocks but they're not albinos. The colors and what Mother Nature has given us are amazing. 

They're a minor annoyance Grant Schneider I would miss them. 

Paul S. Henderson, CRS, REALTOR®, Larry helped a friend and his dad round up some when he was in college.  He said he had scratches everywhere.

Brian England I was in Marshall's a few years ago and their feathers sell for about $8.00 each. 

Dick Greenberg I had no idea they were good watch birds!  They show up here for their 3 meals! LOL

Debbie Walsh I worry when I see them walking on the street.  They aren't anxious to get out of the way of cars. 

Anna Banana Kruchten, CRS I think anyone who has heard their "noise" will never forget it. Really loud.

It sounds like having Peacocks for neighbors . . . . makes for interesting neighbors.

Good luck and success.

I remember going on a field trip to the zoo with a class of 2nd graders.  It was spring time.  And, yes, I definitely remember the sound of peacocks calling out the song of love!

Oh, I had no idea that they were so noisy, Kathy!  They surely are gorgeous - I can't imagine co-existing with such beautiful birds though - how wonderful!
