Peacock

Pavo cristatus

Description:

Beautiful plummage that the bird will display when it is trying to attract a female. This is a perfect example of sexual selection in animals. Peafowl are also known to crow like roosters. The loud bird you hear at the zoo is usually the resident peafowl

Notes:

This was taken at the San Francisco Zoo
