They do have over 200 colorful elongated feathers that attract not just their potential partners, but many people’s attention and cameras, too.
But often their vibrant assets distract from their other capabilities. Few people get a chance to see these birds off a ground, but they can, indeed, fly. Though usually peacocks do that in case of danger, rather than pleasure. When predators appear, birds start running and flutter into the air. Surprisingly, the long feathers don’t affect their take-offs. The distance might be limited, but they can speed up to 16 km/h (10 mph)!
