Rare Bird / White Peacock
White Peacock, Davie, FL 2013
Peacocks are known for their brilliant colors, especially the males, who open and fan their long tail feathers to get the attention of females.
A much more rare example of this beautiful peafowl is the White Peacock. These are not albino but a color variation of the India Blue Peacock. They start off yellow as chicks and turn all white as they mature. This particular male lives at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida. While all of the others are “Blue” or the colored birds more commonly seen, this bird stays away from the rest as if it were not welcome.
A sad commentary on the isolation of being different… yet no less beautiful.
