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.

    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 🙂

    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!

  4. hahaha! That would be hard to take in the morning!

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    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.

    Hard to “like” that racket, but you know what I mean!

    Oh my…that would be a struggle to endure. At least the noise is temporary.

    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!

    Pretty cool… I’d say. 😉
