These bring back a couple of memories. One of them is when we (myself and 2 young daughters) got kicked out of a concessions area at the Kansas City zoo because my 2 year old decided to chase a peacock. This peacock upended a bunch of tables where people were eating. Food and drinks went flying everywhere! It wasn't like I had no control of her. This all happened in milliseconds but felt like an hour. I was so embarrassed.

The other memory is much simpler but interesting. I was visiting a man in Kans City whom had a bunch of pet peacocks. They roamed the neighbourhood freely just like children. The neighbours did not care They were mowing their yards, washing the cars Chatting with one another and here are these birds roaming the streets and yards and no one paid any attention to them. It was weird.
These bring back a couple of memories. One of the... (show quote)


Two interesting stories Tom thank you very much for writing them. Your last story made me smile as this peacock was over friendly! Very used to visitors and certainly enjoyed getting closeup to you. While Bob was relaxing on a deckchair it kept coming right up behind and to the side of him, I thought he was going to get his head pecked. When I was trying to take some of the shots he kept walking towards me and I had to reverse!!
