The beautiful forest bird native to Southeast Asia has a similar appearance to both sexes. Their facial skin is double stripped and has extended upper tail coverts that hide the lower tail. The powerful flyers prefer to live near water and make nests on the ground. Green peafowl is polygynous with no parental responsibilities while behaving as monogamous in captivity and taking care of offspring. They live a safer life in captivity than in the wild.
This beautiful pheasant has been listed as an “Endangered” species since 2009 due to rapid population decline, especially due to habitat loss. Hunting and poaching are other reasons for the rapid reduction in their population size.
