Meanwhile, near Rocky Knob (in background), numbers of peafowl, generally 10 – 16, gather each evening for a small pre-roost feed.  They stroll in from different directions, sometimes running if they think they are going to miss out on the modest hand-out, sometimes flying down from the rooftops where they have been waiting after a day of lean foraging.  The males are beginning to show iridescent eyes in their emerging trains.  About 6 survived from the 3 broods last Spring.
