Famous for its spectacular tail

The blue peacock is famous for the wheel that the male performs to seduce his female. If the male is a brilliant blue and green, the female is duller at nesting inconspicuously. Both have a very typical feather crest on their heads.

The blue peacock, often in groups and sometimes isolated, forages on the ground during the day and will roost in its favorite "dormitory" tree to spend the night safe from predators. He is a sedentary bird and his life is well regulated. It forages in the same areas every day, sleeps and displays in the same places.

The blue peacock is very common in captivity. There are also many mutations. On the other hand, in the natural environment, its numbers are in constant decline because of the loss of its habitat and the natural predation of tigers and panthers to which must be added that of domestic dogs on the outskirts of villages.

The blue peacock is native to Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh where it has almost disappeared. It is now high in many countries, the United States, Africa and Europe.
