A peacock’s train expands as it rises, falling open like a Spanish fan.
In his third year his tail has gained full length. For the rest of his life — and he may live to be thirty-five — he will have nothing better to do than manicure his tail, furl and unfurl it, dance forward and backward with it spread, scream when it is stepped upon and arch it carefully when he steps through a puddle.
It’s hard to to resist a peacock’s allure. When the journalist Sean Flynn saw a regal peacock sitting on a farm roof, he was awe-struck. “His train hung over the gutter like a ristra, catching speckles of midday sunlight sneaking through the trees,” he writes. The feathers were “sparks of green and gold, copper and turquoise, burgundy and blue-black, all of them flashing and fading again with the slightest movement. It was the most magnificent creature I had ever seen.”
Peacocks were once kept as royal pets, a spectacular creature with iridescent blue and green coloring, long shimmering tail feathers with distinctive eye markings and a crowned head that makes him look like a bejeweled invitee to a royal ball. Today their brash, awesome presence graces South Florida and Mexico for all to enjoy.

“We have multiple peacock that roam our neighborhood. They are quite spectacular to look at as they meander through our yard. They also are clumsy, loud, dig holes, uproot plants devour others. They do have personalities and I suppose they do have souls. They are also that charming, attractive guest at your party that after after a glass of champagne you can’t wait to leave.”
