This may not be the type of wildlife you might expect, but they have a place in plantation history. The Peacock, on guard duty.
They were first a status symbol on plantations.
They also call, very loudly, when they are disturbed. They were, and are, a fixture on plantations.
Both of these birds run wild at a plantation now. In the evening when we walk through the back, heading to cars, they sit and watch us leave. Usually the same place.
They eat by the barn here, spend the night up in the trees. During the day they strut by the tourist picnic tables looking for a handout, or a child to peck.
