When one speaks of Peacock, it is usually with reference to the male of the two species in Pavo familiy, Pavo cristatus (Indian) and Pavo muticus (Green). They are best known for the male’s extravagant tail feathers. The female of the species are called peahen, which are usually brown or a toned down color. The peacock have their signature tail, to display it, and attract a mate.
The peacock has been a subject of various artworks, and the Indian peafowl is the national bird of India.
