Isn’t this guy just gorgeous? I love his beautiful strut. If I was a peahen, well, I’d sure pick him!
Watching this reminded me of a time a few years ago when my sisters and I visited the Fort Wayne Indiana Children’s Zoo. There were peacocks everywhere and they just merrily walked around the zoo doing their thing. There was this one rather persistent white peacock who took a particular liking to my oldest sister. He proudly strutted his stuff and a did a cute little courtship dance for her. Multiple times. There were no peahens around (that we could see anyway) and he kept running to intentionally get in front of my sister to show off for her. He would periodically turn around and shake his rear and vibrate his entire body. It was so funny. I told my sister he was obviously flirting with her and that it looked like she had a new boyfriend. We laughed at that ole peacock til I almost wet my pants. I thought for a while that he had big plans to come home with us. We told him he sure was beautiful and finally he went on his way and left us alone.
