The Indian Peafowl (Monara)

The Indian Peafowl is native to India and Sri Lanka. It ‘is distributed widely across the low country dry zone of Sri Lanka[1].

A Quick Observation: A Peahen in the busy suburbs of Colombo? One day — one; the next day -two. A short rest on the neighbours’ roof — a glide and a somewhat clumsy-landing on our garden — and a few exploring rounds pecking on the ground.

(Seen in April 2021)
