He's beautifull, but dirty, like all birds.
Hey, if he was smart he could use that tail to catch flying meals....and spiders.... and minnows.

They chose to spray a bright pink dye on several birds as a test. The pink birds flew with the rest of the flock for a week or so but they were slowly ostracized by the flock and eventually they were totally excluded. Several were actually found dead having been attacked by other geese, litterally pecked to death. The others died from going solo making them easier prey for coyotes and other preditors.

And they say humans are the only ones who are xenophobic.

With their plumage furled they look like the 'road runner'.
There's a farmer down here that raises peacocks and turkeys. Almost all the turkeys are white but I've never seen a white peacock.
And yes, when they yell they really do sound like a frightened woman. Scare the hell outa you if you're not expecting it. Loud as hell too.
