Before you learn how to draw a Peacock, did you know?
The peacock is famous for the beautifully colored feathers on its tail but there are actually two kinds of Peacocks and only the Indian Peacock has this tail know as the “train”. This tail is made of quill feathers and highly elongated coverts. These feathers have the eyespot marks that we see when he fans his tail. Males and females of both species have a crest on top of their heads but only the male has the beautiful tail to attract his mate.
The female peacocks are a mix of dull grey, green and brown feathering and are not as impressive as the males.
