photoblog image Pride

Our National Pride. The Peacock has over the years been Sri Lanka's national bird and is features internationally on our national Carrier, Sri Lankan and was very prominent as an icon and logo in the former AirLanka. Today the modernised version of the logo stands out proud on the tail of the airline and the feather of this magnificient bird can be seen on our very own beautiful stewerdesses  and ground staff of Sri Lankan.

Location. Is widely seen in almost all our national parks and wild life reserves and also in the northern prvinces of the Island. It's call can somewhat be annoying at times but nevertheless, he is a magnificient bird and should be protected.

The peacock, largest of the pheasants, is native to Sri Lanka and India. It is often the male of the species that is shown in photographs, showing the beautiful plumage. Hence the simile "proud as a peacock". The female (pea hen) lacks the beautiful ornamental feathers or the bright coloring.

Although native to Sri Lanka, the peacock population has gone down considerably, for, at one time it was considered a delicacy and peafowl were hunted down indiscriminately.

Let us truely protect this bird and spread the word across.
