3/31/2006: Albino peacock



Two different people have pointed me to an albino peacock in the last few weeks - and I don't even think they're the same one. Nonetheless, they're interesting in this albino form and IotD always enjoys the unusual whities although it is not at all racist.

Funny to think that under all that fluff is a tiny little pigeon of a bird. See what fashion can do for you?

That bird's just asking to be Photoshopped.

That would be cool. But, I think the white eerie/awesome. So ethereal.

Those birds have always been beautiful in the past, and this one is even more attractive. Although not as much when compared to the gorgeous 30-pounder in the background. (Go ahead, correct me if I'm wrong)

Albino peacocks remind me of lace patterns.

Beautiful birds!

...too bad the number of "presents" they leave behind is almost as bad a Candian geese. If they get into your neighborhood, they're difficult to get rid of and the result is your street, yard, driveway, and roof being paved over in extreme amounts of bird doo. So nasty.

And starting this summer (or maybe next), the droppings will contain the bird flu virus. Yea!

And their call sounds like a woman screaming or crying. Not nice at all.
