Peacocks at the Park
Spring is definitely in the air! It is so nice to get out and take a drive into the country or to the park. We have a beautiful park that I can remember going to as a child. It had a small amusement park, a swimming pool, and lots of play equipment! The amusement park and the swimming pool are memories now but the park is still the perfect place to have a family picnic, to cast a line into one of the lakes or to just walk along the shore of the river that runs nearby. On this day, we went out to see the peacocks. For as long as I can remember there have been peacocks at the park.....lots of them!
In the spring the males fan their feathers and vibrate them to attract the peahen (female). They were very busy on the afternoon that we visited.
This fellow had gotten out of the pen so I followed him around the area for a little while. He put on quite a show then slowly made his way around the outside of the fenced area and decided to re-join his friends.
Today is Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer, and I am joining in the fun. If you have some time, stop by to see the adventures that are being shared.
