Blue peacocks or peafowls are generally referred as the Indian peafowls and they are also the national birds of India. These birds are native to South Asia and they are mostly found in the forests of the Indian sub continent and also along the low land areas in Sri Lanka. Blue peafowls generally prefer areas where water is available. The scientific name for blue peafowls is Pavo cristatus.

Few Interesting Facts On Blue Peacock Birds

Unlike the green peafowls, the blue peafowls look much different among the male and female birds. The female birds known as blue peahens are mostly brown with a prominent crest and beautiful and colorful feathers mainly in the neck. The male birds reach a total length of about 2.3 meters, which makes them one of the largest flying birds, while the female birds reach a maximum length of about 1 meter.

It is believed that it is the Phoenician traders who came to India during the time of King Solomon who took few of the birds along with them when they went back and introduced them to Syria and also Egypt.

Peacock population has reduced considerably over years and the Indian peafowls have reduced to about half in number, so now efforts are going on everywhere to save and conserve these precious birds.

Blue Peacock In Ancient Cultures

Peafowls, especially the blue peacocks, have great importance in many cultures. From ancient times, they are very much related to both Indian and Greek mythology.

Blue peacocks and their beauty are described greatly in many Indian legends and also artworks and poetry by veteran artists and poets. It is said that the description of these beautiful birds in Indian art works and poems made the European naturalists think that it was a fictional bird created by the imagination of the artists, until they actually saw the large flying bird which is extraordinarily beautiful. Peacock designs are highly popular in Indian antiques and especially in designer clothes from ancient times.

In Greece, the beautiful peacocks and their plumage are related with the story of goddess Hera. Goddess Hera was married to Zeus, however Zeus fell in love with a fair maiden named Lo. When Hera found out about this, she took Lo to a monster named Argus who had hundred eyes and asked him to keep her in captivity. Zeus wanted to help Lo and so he sent his servant Hermes to rescue Lo. Hermes had to kill Argus to rescue Lo and Hera was deeply saddened by the death of her loyal servant. The hundred eyes of Argus had made him an efficient watchman. Hera decided to transfer his eyes to the tail of her favorite bird, the peacock, in honor of Argus. According to Greek mythology, this is how peacocks got the beautiful designs in their feathers.

The association of peacock feather plumage with the eyes of the monster might be the reason many people consider peacock feathers as a sign of bad luck. Even though this myth can be associated with all peacock species, it is the blue peacocks that are usually referred in Greek legends. The Greeks also associated the blue peacocks with Juno who is the goddess of the sky and stars, due to the appearance of beautiful golden plumage in their feathers in blue background.

In contrast to the association of peacock plumage with bad luck, in Indian culture,  peacocks were always regarded as sacred birds and their presence indicated good luck and prosperity. There   is also a myth associated with peacocks which says not to show peacock feathers to the sky, but instead keep those inside a book!

Nice page, Violette! I must have forgotten the story of peacocks in Greek mythology. It's a great one! Also nice how they made their way from India and South East Asia to Egypt with the help of the Phoenicians, and then to Europe, where people believed the bird was invented. Great page! Really enjoyed it :)
