Meet Andrew the Peacock and his feathered friends!
Andrew the Peacock is the most colourful bird at ‘Our Backyard’.
Peacocks are best known for their amazing eye-spotted tail feathers or plumage. Peacocks lose all of their tail feathers every summer, taking almost 10 months to grow new ones.
Purpose at ‘Our Backyard’
The Peacocks and Peahens at ‘Our Backyard’ mostly walk around looking beautiful, they love showing off to our visitors with their gorgeous feathers.
Listen and look out for our Peacocks. Their feathers make a rattlesnake-like noise when they vibrate their beautiful tail into a colourful display.
