Peacocks are one of the most beautiful birds on the whole planet. Their beautiful feathers are hypnotizing, aren’t they? Most peacocks are born with colorful iridescent feathers, but each of them has slightly different pattern from the others, like a snowflake or a fingerprint. Did you know that?
Some peacocks tend to completely lack color in their plumage because of a genetic mutation called leucism. They are not albino, they simply do not have any color, but their eyes are not red. I was very fortunate to get to see two suck peacocks while traveling in India. They were roaming free in a town and the people there considered them sacred.
But despite lacking color, these white feathered peacocks are just as majestic as their colorful counterparts. Just take a look at this video captured below! It shows a white peacock showing off in a park. You can hear the amazement of the spectators as he spreads his tail feathers. Of course, he gives the standard warning call before he opens them. The sound they make is quite unique.
What a stunning display this was! Peacocks usually do this dance in order to attract possible mates, although I don’t see any nearby in this park. The park appears to be somewhere in Europe and this peacock seems perfectly content in his habitat. It’s a spectacular display. I could watch this for hours!
