Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus)
Unlike the Indian peafowl, which most people are familiar with, the male and female green peafowl have similar coloration. Green peafowl have green, rather than blue, feathers on the head and neck. This endangered species has a very rapidly declining and severely fragmented population, primarily owing to intense habitat conversion and high hunting levels.
