If you've ever been to Living Treasures Moraine, you will most likely recognize Blue, our male Indian Peacock. He is a visitor favorite because he likes to roam the park, greet visitors, and even show off a little.
Most people don't usually get the chance to be so close to animals like this, and Blue will often just stroll by to let people get a better look at him. Why is his name "Blue?" Because male peacocks are predominantly blue in color, and they are best known for their long train of feathers. Females are known as "Peahens," lack the train of feathers, and is a duller shade of brown. These birds are celebrated in Indian and Greek mythology, and they are the national bird of India.
Adult Peafowl can usually escape ground predators by flying into trees, but here at the park, you may catch a glimpse of Blue hanging out in other interesting places as well. While it is important not to chase him, he will often allow you to stop and take a picture if you approach him in a gentle manner.
