Peacocks, Birdwatching for Urban birds in Lucknow, India

peahens india (1)

I clicked this picture from my balcony in Lucknow, last winter. Peacocks and peahens don’t mind our home in the dense green surroundings. They sit on my rooftop at times, and even come to feed on the roti served for birds that are more frequent in visiting my balcony: warblers, babblers, mynas,the lone coucal, pairs of pink flecked doves and crows.

In this picture the peahens and peacocks are sitting on a neem tree, laden with the Giloi (Amruth, Guduchi) climber.

I feel so lucky that Peacock, the National Bird of India, lives so close to me.
