In reality it is a simple courtship display yet the striking fanned plumage of peacocks has fascinated people for thousands of years. From folklore to mythology to the history of a nation (it is the national bird of India), peacocks have both enchanted and drawn suspicion. To the peahen (female peacock), the peacock’s famous train made up of elongated tail “covert” feathers decorated with “ocelli” or eye spots is simply a test to determine the best mate. The greater the number of ocelli, the more attractive she finds the peacock.
