Caption: Peacock displaying as part of a courtship display. The green peafowl (Pavo muticus) is a forest bird native to East Asia. In the wild, peafowl are found in deep forest, travelling in small flocks and living off insects. The males are referred to as peacocks and the females, who lack the impressive train of feathers, as peahens.
