Indian Peacock (Pavo cristatus)

Origin: Originally India, currently widespread
Sighted at: Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary, Austin, TX

If you want to be pedantic, “peafowl” is the name for the bird species, as “peacock” really just refers to the male. Misandry of the animal world.

Austin actually has wild peacocks, but this picture of one of the free-roaming zoo variety is much nicer than any of my street-roaming snapshots.
