The Indian Peafowl (Pavo cristatus), also called the Common peafowl or Blue Peafowl, is a type of peafowl that lives on the Indian subcontinent. Peacocks birds are the males, while peahens are the females. They are peafowl when they are all together. A peacock, which is also called a peafowl, is any of three beautiful birds in the Phasianidae family. The male is called a peacock, and the female is called a peahen. Both of these birds are called peafowl. The bluer, or Indian Peacock, which lives in India and Sri Lanka, and the green, or Javanese, peacock, which lives from Myanmar to Java, are the two most easily recognizable types of peafowl. The Congo peacock, or Afropavo congensis, was discovered in 1936. It lives in the forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
