|The male Peafowl has shimmering blue-green or green colored plumage. The tail of the peacock, also named as the "train", is not the tail but highly elongated upper tail part. The female Peafowl has a mixture of dull green, brown, and grey in her plumage. She lacks the long upper tail coverts of the male but has a crest.
Peafowl are omnivorous and eat plant parts, flower petals, seed heads, insects and other arthropods, reptiles, and amphibians.
