This Suburban Neighborhood is Overrun with Peacocks
It’s easy to think that peacocks are elegant and majestic creatures until you hear the noise they like to make at four in the morning.
In a short video trending on Reddit today, this unfortunate suburban neighborhood as a thriving population of peafowl – about 50 of them according to one YouTube commenter – and every spring the males spend a lot of their time strutting around with their tails up and screeching at things.
Apparently the land where the neighborhood was built used to be a farm, and the birds were just left behind when the farmers moved out.
My childhood neighborhood had a family of four peafowl randomly show up one year, and I can confirm they’re astonishingly loud and annoying, and they’ll also shit all over your porch. Not really worth the fun of collecting tail feathers if you ask me.
