Meet Andrew and his friends

Andrew is the resident Peacock at ‘Our Backyard’ with his many feathered friends


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.

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 Andrew. His feathers make a rattlesnake-like noise when he vibrates his beautiful tail into a colourful display.
