I live near Arcadia, CA, and there are a bunch of peacocks running around.
I did my weekly grocery shopping yesterday morning and drove back home through Arcadia. As I drove, I came upon a small herd of peacocks strutting down the center of the street.
I lightly honked at the ones directly in front of me; the biggest turned around and stared at me for about 40 seconds, then S-L-O-W-L-Y turned and walked to the sidewalk.
I told DH: "I think I just got schooled by a peacock!"
