AKA peacock  :) Like this one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peacock

I was interested to notice that they seem to be called peafowl as a proper name, not peacock as we all call them!

It is like the US Declaration of Independence "All MEN are Created Equal"  What about the other half of the population?

A "Cock" as in Peacock refers to the male (which is the colorful one).
As opposed to the Peahen

So...  actually the proper term would be a "Peachick"    ???
