A peacock in full plumage is surely among the most beautiful and spectacular pheasants in the world. This gorgeous peacock is a larger, higher standing, and brighter bird with a long, straight crest.
Because of their gorgeous appearance, the peacock has long been famous outside of its native countries of Southern Asia and Malaysia, and was kept for centuries by people first in China and then in Europe. The Phoenicians brought the peacock to Egypt more than three thousand years ago. Peacock feathers are popularly used in unique crafts and decorations.
