Multiply this by about ten and you will know what it is like here during mating season!
Ah, this is more like it!

I always hear the peacocks in Holland park before I see one.
Their only downside!
I actually love the sound – makes me feel like I am in another country!
My second son and his girlfriend gave us a beautiful card last Christmas with a peacock on the front and a message telling us the enclosed $s were to buy a peacock We are still in the process of setting up our seven acres but the peacock will come
I hope you have nice neighbours because they are very noisy in the spring!
They can be bloody noisy .. but is that not why you’re on a farm… ???
Thank goodness we are on a farm. They have never been this noisy before (last year they were too young to be all matey!) I can see why people might complain if you had them next door!
hahaha! That would be hard to take in the morning!
My sister-in-law stayed the other night and she couldn’t believe it!
That’s a very good imitation!
Look at me, Ladies! Gotta love those peacocks.
Julie, while I find them beautiful to look at, being the city boy I am, that noise (I don’t know what else to call it) would quickly drive me insane. — Take care, Bill
I love the sound that they make. My neighbor keeps these guys, too, and it is oddly beautiful to hear these calls in quiet western New York.
Haunting but in a pleasant way!
I too love the sound of peacocks during mating season, but then they live far away from me and I don’t hear them often. There are two parks in Pasadena, CA with peacocks and some have gotten out on their own and have gone wild. People in Pasadena complain about them almost as much as they complain about coyotes. I think the sounds of nature are wonderful and I’ll take what ever chirping, cheeping, or crowing I can get.
Yeah and I love it even when they are doing this calling thing from the rooftop!
That’s got to be quite the wake up call! Do you find they prefer a place where it will echo?
When I lived in Dover, UK – we often visit Leeds castle and they have the most stunning peacocks – not any white strangely enough and they had so many too – so when they start yelling it was nearly unbearable to be there – all of them in one go. Stunning birds – saw on the TV the other day – its not the short tail underneath the long trail that support the trail when they are doing their show stop number – didn’t know that they are hiding a shorter tail under the trail.
Very interesting. We learn something new everyday. It was a program about Chinese peacocks.
I’ll have to look that tv show up!
It was a program that sent on the Nature channel the other day … about a guy that stayed in a special area in China where they had the most fantastic monkeys – snakes .. and red pandas.
They have wild peacocks .. too, but it’s a dying breed.
Yunnan Province – is the area called, can’t find the program .. yet.
Found a link to program – http://uktv.co.uk/eden/item/aid/650043
Oh Viveka you are so gorgeous to send me this link but it won’t work for me – argh – anyway I will try to google it – thank you so much! Juliexxx
Strange … I found that link over google – so it should work.
The program is called -Yuanna Adventure and the guy is the program is naturalilst and broadcaster Nigel Marven.
Search on his name or programs name Good luck.
Hard to “like” that racket, but you know what I mean!
What do you mean? It’s a symphony – haha!
Oh my…that would be a struggle to endure. At least the noise is temporary.
Mating season can last 5 months!!!
Oh dear, that’s a long time!
Oh my goodness
It’s lovely isn’t it – hahahaha!
The first time I heard these birds screaming, I thought someone was dying. The only thing that might compete is a whole herd of angry guinea fowl!
Our guinneas are quiet compared to this!
Pretty cool… I’d say.
