Photographer's Note

Hello my dear friends,

I shot this beautiful bird in the first week of April, 2013 when I traveled at Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh. This is my first visit at Kanha. It is the largest sanctuary in India. We started our safari in morning when all the animals specially birds were active by their nature. This peacock was watching its food in a bush area.

The male Indian peacock has iridescent blue or green-colored plumage. The peacock tail is not the tail quill feathers but the highly elongated upper tail covert feathers. The eyes are best seen when the peacock fans its tail. Both species have a crest atop the head. The female Indian peahen has a mixture of dull grey, brown, and green in her plumage. Although she lacks the long upper tail coverts of the male, she has a crest. The female also displays her plumage to ward off female competition or signal danger to her young.

Peacock is the National Bird in India.

I got an opportunity to shoot this beautiful and young bird.

best wishes to all,

swapankumarroy
