Remember when I said I was done reviewing all the bird books Sean and I borrowed from the library? I was wrong. I found a few more while going through my reading notes. I can't believe I forgot our favorite book from the the set: Peacocks by Ruth Berman.
In 48 pages Peacocks covers the habitat, breeding cycle, life cycle, diet and history of this beautiful bird. It teaches all the different terms for the species (collectively called peafowl). Peacocks are obviously the males; peahens are the females; peachicks are the offspring. Peacocks are members of the pheasant family and spend most of their time in trees.
Sean and I enjoyed this book so much because peafowl are such a feature at most zoos and gardens the birds are never really explained. They just are. This book helped fill in the blanks.

that is true, it does seem like most zoos have wandering peacocks. Husband had a show off with one during one of our visits, I'm afraid his plumage just isn't as impressive! LOL! The poor bird was fanning his tail for all he was worth and kept turing in a circle as my husband walked around him, it was funny!"

The book made me realize that I knew NOTHING about peafowl."
