Peacocks are in front of housesA new trend is noticed here in Palakkad area. Several peacocks are seen in and around the compounds of houses, which were very rare before a few years back.
In front of my house, when I was sitting there and reading, I saw three peacocks, two males and one female, walking slowly, not worried about the presence of a man, and climbing over the mango tree there. From there it flew to another tree which was taller one. They spend their nights there and in the morning go in search of food.
Loss of forests are perhaps a reason for their changing the habit.
