The Indian Peafowl (Blue Peafowl) is a large, brightly colored bird native to South Asia, but introduced in many other parts of the world. The male peacock is mostly blue with a fan-like crest of spatula-tipped feathers & is best known for the long train made up of elongated upper-tail feathers which bear colorful eyespots. These stiff, elongated feathers are raised into a fan & quivered in a display during courtship. The female has a greenish lower neck, a duller brown plumage & no train.

Blue/Indian Peacock - The long train feathers (and tarsal spurs) of the male develop only after the second year of life. Fully developed trains are found in birds older than four years. In northern India, these begin to develop each February & are molted at the end of August. The molt of the flight feathers may be spread out across the year.
