peacock

Check out more Outdoor Wednesday!
In June I took the boys to the zoo. The zoo in Las Vegas is a very small, no frills zoo. They have peacocks and chickens (and pigeons, yuck!) roaming around loose. We came across this guy showing off his feathers and much to our surprise he didn't mind Grant gently touching them. It was a real treat for my son.

  1. They are such beautiful birds -- it's interesting to note that they roost in trees -- that is a sight!

  7. How pretty! I love the beauty of the peacock...but boy, can they tear up a yard. And they do make a racket!!!
    There is a flock roaming the neighborhood by my son's soccer field. They've been there for years!

  13. They are such beautiful birds and you pictures of them are perfect. I imagine the summers in your area would make a larger zoo impossible. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous birds and handsome young man with us today. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  17. Beautiful pictures and birds! My grandpa had a couple of peacocks on his farm, but they never let us get near them.
