Movement

Peacocks are very funny but also real majestic when they walk. The first thing you see when a peacock walks is it head jerking back and forth like a turkey. You also see the beautiful feathers on its back ruffle and squirm around and the nice train of feathers wiggle. All of the movements will make sense once you watch this video.(Peacock,World Book Kids)

Body Covering

Peacocks have beautiful bright blue neck and a shiny silver back. Long strands of gorgeous

green feathers(Also known as trains) line the back and and jet black spots smack in the middle of the feather look like eyeballs! Once the train of feathers spread they look fetching to the women which we will talk about later.(SIRS Discover,Animal Facts)
