Wild Peacocks Sighted

Peafowl with Peacock displaying his tail
One of our readers from Amherstburg sent us this report of her bird sighting - Every day on my way to work I am seeing 5-7 wild Peacocks grazing on the side of the road - can this be true? I didn't really believe it but I stopped yesterday and it was true - Peacocks!
Wow, if they are Peafowl, they must be birds that have escaped from captivity because they are not native to North America - they are from the Indian sub-continent, and must have been in someone's private animal collection.
Have any other readers seen Peacocks near Amherstburg or elsewhere? Let us know if you see them - we'd love to hear about it!
Thank you Judith, for sending this report!
