    1. Yep. They like to roost in trees just like turkeys. There was a study years back where someone cut off the tail feathers from some captive male peacocks and found that they're actually quite capable flyers when they don't have to deal with the massive drag their tails create.

  2. They must have a lot of lift to get all that color airborne.

  3. Cool. I've seen peacocks running around the neighborhood, but it never occurred to me that they could fly.
