Another large, charismatic fowl

Work and weather gave me my first opportunity this year to stroll in the Lazienki Park (our annual conference was across the road in the Hyatt hotel). The peacock, close relative of the pheasant, is also in mating mood and its loud cries resound throughout the park. The chap on the right was content to sun himself in the April sunshine (not much of it this month so far), rather than displaying his feathers for the ladies.

This time last year:

Sunset across the tracks, between Jeziorki and Dawidy

I have a lot of pictures of the Łazienki peacocks & peahens. They used to have their own gallery but then got blended in with "animals".
