Love is in the air.......


In the summer it is mating season for the local peacocks.  There are so many of these beautiful birds wandering around, calling with their high picked screams, and shaking their tails to attract the perfect female for the next generation.  The dance is very sweet, as each male moves his booty quickly to send the sexiest message.  This is only one of the many that I saw tonight on my walk.  I even found a peacock egg this morning before my run.  I expect we are going to have a record number of these birds walking around Beacon Hill Park in the very near future.

  2. I like the new picture of your page.
    I always asked why the male of peacocks more beautiful and attractive than female?!

    1. Thanks Abdul!!! I wonder that myself, but I do believe it is because the male is the one that attracts the female, so perhaps the beautiful feathers allure her in. It is funny to see as he shakes his back end in a sort of dance to bring her in. You know, I don't really know for sure, but will look it up to find out. I'll keep you posted :)

  5. Hi Suzanne,
    Proud as a peacock. Lovely photos of that magnificent bird and all it glorious plumage. Wow, never seen a peacock egg. Beacon Hill Park. I have been there and it brings back many fond memories. I went on the horse-drawn carriage tour with my now ex.
    I was up in the North East of England about a year ago in the magnificent cathedral city of Durham. Where I stayed at my friend's house, you were woken up very early in the morning by the call of the local wandering peacocks :)
    Have a peaceful day in the fair city of Victoria.
    With respect and kind wishes, Gary

    1. Hi Gary:
      Thanks for your lovely message. Yes, the peacock are noisy creatures, sounds a bit like a person screaming or perhaps shrieking. :) A peacock's egg is about double that of a medium chicken egg and about the same color. I had never seen one before either.
      We still have those horse drawn carriages and with summer, all the tourists are taking full advantage of the tours. Nice to see them around the city.
      I would love to visit England with all the architecture. Durham sounds wonderful, buildings and with those wild peacocks!!!
      Enjoy your day!!!
      Suzanne

      The peacocks are very easy to get up close too. I just happened to be carrying my camera on my walk, so I loved being able to get these images. I'm really enjoying sharing my part of the world with everyone!!! :)
