Yep, like the title says, there was a peacock in my backyard! I was sitting down on my balcony when I noticed a large bird walking through my backyard. I initially thought it was my neighbor's pet turkey, but no, it was a peacock!
I ran after the big bird with my camera. Pity I wasn't holding on to my zoom lens, so I couldn't manage to snap any decent shots. The peacock started running off upon seeing me, and I got a mug shot of it flying up on to the top of my neighbor's house.
I was extremely surprised to have seen a peacock (this one is probably a female; peahen) in my area. Well yes, the peacock is the national bird of India, but they were never found in these areas. But upon asking my parents, I figured out that this particular individual was probably one that sneaked out from the nearby Hindu temple, where they grow peacocks. So you can't really call it 'wild'!
