peacock on the next terrace

here in ahmedabad (where i'm down for the long weekend) peacocks (and parrots, mynahs, langurs, camels etc) are very commonplace

our wake up call at dawn are the calls of this peacock who frequents the next terrace, you get up and look out of the window and the sight of this peacock in full plumage greets you. what a way to start the day

back in mumbai, there was this picture and story on page 3 on how everyone was excited when a peahen was sighted on the TOI roof- a rare occurence.

just one of the small pleasures of life you trade off for the big city experience (?!). go figure
