Dear Atria, today we've learned something new about peacocks. Most people use the term 'peacock' to describe well recognised bird with a beautiful tail. Did you know that these birds are actually called peafowls? Only the male peafowl is called a peacock. The female is called a peahen and the offspring are peachicks. Only the male peacocks have the extravagant, colourful tails.
I and Baba, we didn't know this and we used to call all the peafowls peacocks. Today we visited the LA ZOO and Botanical Garden and we learned something new.
