This beautiful guy is back, now that it's a little warmer.

This cutie has been walking around Bayville for several weeks now but this year, more than last he's really making the rounds. Have you seen the peacock?

Several of my friends and Facebook posts have shown the peacock all over the place in Berkeley Township. He was recently seen on Harborage Ave., off of Hickory, and the area behind the Wawa in Bayville.  He's been in several cul-de-sacs off of Central Avenue and has been seen on Rt. 9. Please everybody let's just be careful and not hit him. As I'm writing this article my friend lives near Hickory and she calls him Al.

I love when I hear he's been on the roof of sheds and houses.

Now, how do I know it's a "he" peacock. I googled it - How can I tell the difference between a male and female peacock? Females are as big as males but lack the train and head ornament. The beautiful feathers marked with eye-spots are just gorgeous and of course, that's the male. Isn't that how it always is. Just like mallards, with the beautiful green head and neck, it's the males that are gorgeous, just like the peacock. When a male peacock fans his tail, that's when the beautiful feathers "flutter" out.
