The peafowl has iridescent bluish-green plumage. Peafowl are most notable for their extravagant display feathers with an eye at the end of each feather. They are ground dwelling birds with strong legs, feeding on seeds, insects, fruits and snakes. Peafowls are found in dry grasslands, scrub and deciduous forests. While it forages and nests on the ground, it roosts on top of trees.

The flesh of a peafowl is thought to be incorruptible, especially among the tiyanak. Its also a symbol of pride.
