Peacocks strike me as the sort of bird that likes to be watched, but knows when you’re watching. The peacock is celebrated as the national bird of
India, enjoying a fabled place, and is Often depicted in temple art and poetry. When the peacock opens its train it is a miraculous sight; an aura revealed. Peacocks are plentiful in Rajasthan. Their body is big and heavy. It does not fly to much height. They like snakes; venom has no effect. Peacocks are as proud as Maharajahs.
