================================================================

The bird that fascinates me is the King of all birds- Peacock .It is India’s National bird which brings pride to our nation because of its mesmerizing  beauty.

 

A peacock feather is one of Krishna’s important symbols,adorning his head.

Its feathers are also used in pooja.

Peacock fascinates me because…it has feathers that are simply divine. The  feathers of peacock are also very soft and colourful. When it rains they do a wonderful  rain dance. But still many times they are hunted for their feathers…which is bad.

They should also not be hunted because they are a big help to farmers.As they eat snakes and insects etc.
So we should SAVE PEACOCKS!  Which is the right thing to do.

Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy the poem? After that beautiful write up, how about some some cool facts about peacocks, acknowledged by Subhadra Devi, a passionate birder. Since Nandini’s write up mainly focused on the  feathers, so will our facts 🙂

 

Cool Fact#1:

Nandini rightly spoke of  how peacocks are hunted for their feathers. While we all love the beautiful feathers that make this bird stand out, we must not look to buy or sell the feathers, which may lead hunters to hurt these birds.

Cool Fact #2

Peacocks can fly, even with their massive tail feathers, that can reach up to six feet long and make up about 60 percent of its body length. Despite these odd  proportions, the bird flies just fine, if not very far.

Cool Fact #3

What makes the peacock’s feathers so brilliant? Microscopic “crystal-like structures” that reflect different wavelengths of light depending on how they’re spaced, resulting in bright fluorescent colors. Hummingbirds and shimmering butterflies have mastered a similar visual effect on their own wings.
