They call them Peafowls now!

I love the detail on this guy's head and whatever they use that fancy brush hairdo for always confounds me.

Greetings to all and today I will show you some Indian Peafowls (Pavo cristatus) in South Africa and they were in an unusual setting on a famous wine estate.
We have seen the female here before, but today this lovely young guy decided to make an appearance.
Come and have a look.

He looked straight into my eye and said, "Hey, what do you think about my makeup"?
Of course I told him that it was beautiful and he was happy.

Happy enough to walk around and scrounge some tidbits from the diners.

Diners? Yes, this is an open air restaurant on a wine farm.
We regularly pop in here for a coffee.

"Thank you ma'am" he said as he received this morsel in gratitude.

Oh, as usual the wife also came to join the party.

Finally as we left we had to watch out for the Guinea Fowl, pest control squad, as they cross the road indiscriminately.

See what I mean about crossing the road?

Oh yes, we have many fruit and wine farms here and they all have heaps of wildlife on them. Always a pleasure to visit one of the farms and I have never returned from a visit with less than 150 photos of new sightings.
The life on the farms changes with the seasons and beauty abounds in every new season.

And That's All Friends.

Note: All photos are my own and taken with a Canon Powershot SX60HS Bridge camera.

We hope that you enjoyed the story and the pictures

Your comment made me LOL. :-) My understanding is that a peacock and a peahen together are peafowl.

That was how we were taught, sadly new age think everything needs to be renamed which I find quite honestly stupid.

The Peacocks Peafowls are beautiful birds and they know that, otherwise they wouldn't look so proud in my eyes.

Good bird photos as always Zac, I like the look of the bird in the first photo most 😀

Thank you kindly Hannes,

I don't like copy and pasting and so can you kindly have a look at my reply to @tarazkp in the comment below this in the post?
I think that you need a bit of a smile 🤣

Cheers and thanks.

You're very right Zac, I need a smile, and you are very welcome my friend, and I wish you a wonderful day 😊🌞

Glad that I got a smile Hannes,

Some great news here, as I am waiting for a call from an experienced photographer with a boat.
He takes great photos of whales, dolphins and other sea life.
So, if things work out, I will soon be on a boat with my camera.

Here is one of his photos.

Look how that Sardine jumps out of the water 🤣

Cheers and thanks.

That's cool Zac, I have never seen such big animals before and I can imagine that you will have a great time and get amazing photos 😀

Thank you and I got the call Hannes.
Will leave at 6am tomorrow morning and spend the day in that town. On the rocks at the seaside of course. He told me that the whales are having a great time there with all of the food.

Cheers and thanks.

Cool, I wish you a great day my friend, have much fun and a lot of whales to see 😀

Thank you my friend and it is done. Sadly not one whale breached, but there was much action all over the place. Like the one guy said there, the sea was boiling.
One day I surely get a whale climbing out of the water, but tomorrow is always another day 😉

Cheers and thanks.

They will always be cocks to me.

They reckon that it is a vulgar word and for the life of me I can't understand why? It is after all only a bird. Maybe they will change the name "bird" as well, as it is slang for a chick (woman).
Oh and maybe they will change the name "chick" as well methinks.

Now I wonder what they are going to call a Rooster cock :)
Maybe a Rooster dick?

The words "Cock-a-doodle-doo" will have to be taken out of all children's books and dictionaries.

Hahaha, you were right, Zac, you've made me smile 😁
We show somebody the bird, but I have never called a girl a bird, but sometimes a chick 😂 and the word birding means something quite different in German ... it's like playing rugby 🤣🤣🤣


Cheers and !BEER

Hahaha, all written in a humourous fashion Hannes and yes, the slang names that we can come up with are mostly ridiculous. We are also learning new names here and when a guy tells you that this "brag" said that, it means that a brag is a guy with a loud mouth.

I think the bird thing stems from the 60s, as there were some song lyrics, but I forget them now.
Now birding and playing rugby makes sense to me 🤣

Cheers and thanks.

That was a lot of fun only because a bird has got a new name 🤣

Yep, and if I said to my wife "let's go play rugby" she wouldn't know what I mean, but I don't use the other word neither 😁

no matter what we call them, these are beautiful photos!

Hahaha, they are indeed a pleasure on the eye milady.

Blessings.

Very beautiful birds. I am amused by this bunch on their head, similar to a bunch of dill. Oh! They are tame!

Yes, they are tame birds that live on the farm and I still have to figure out that bunch of dill on their heads 🤣
