Photographed in captivity at The Swiss Garden, Shuttleworth Old Warden Park, Bedfordshire, England, in April 2010.

The male Indian peafowl (Pavo cristatus) is known as a peacock, and the female as a peahen. THey eat berries, grain, snakes, lizards and small rodents. I don't usually post photographs taken in captivity, but the peacock is so well known in country parks I made an exception.
