Our peacocks can be really entertaining. They fan out their (hardly existent) trains for the silliest things, rustling their feathers and doing a little stampy flamenco dance. I get the impression that they aren’t doing it so much to impress the peahens – they do it whether the hens are present or not. It seems to have more to do with intimidation of other animals. In fact, the hens do it, too. Everything that moves needs to be rustled and pranced at.
Wow Raja, very impressive. I’m sure Tika there in the background is watching. But what are YOU looking at, actually?
Rabbits! Oh. Yes. Very threatening. I’m sure they’re suitably humbled, Raja.
Guinea fowl!! Oh dear. Actually, those buggers can use some humbling.
Meanwhile, Walter is struggling to stay on top of things. He needs to deal with everything at once.
Guinea fowl, rabbits AND cats! It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.
God only knows what they will do if they ever meet something that’s actually a threat, like a big dog. I hope they will manage to scare it off with their rustling and prancing!
