Thank you for the lovely comment Gilma, and i do agree with u the peacocks are the most beutifiulest of the birds, the one in the pic is male, only male peacocks have long beautiful coloured feathers like that a female is not as pretty as the male...

Love those birds, I always call them "Ave de el Paraiso" or "Bird of Paradise" Does the female also has a beautiful tail? Love them but do not know much about them. The one in the picture is a male?
