Peacock [Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class: Aves, Order: Galliformes, Family: Phasianidae, Genus: Pavo]

With its stunning appearance, the peacock has long been known outside the country of origin and in southern Malaysia, and was considered for centuries the first people in China and then in Europe and America. The Phoenicians brought the peacock to Egypt over three thousand years ago. Historical experience shows that Solomon kept the peacock species, including pheasants, with the Indian peacock blue is her favorite.

Peafowl have been largely raised by the Romans to the table as well as for ornamental purposes, and medieval Europe performed well on this practice. Only after the sixteenth century, turkeys were imported from Mexico that the Peacock has been ruled out as a bird table for the thickest American birds.

Today, thousands of people around the world and keep peacocks breed as a hobby or a business around their homes, on farms or game. Many people keep birds in their backyards, while others provide them with more space. Many peacocks roam freely, and spoke on the farm or in the countryside.

Peafowl were also considered a delicacy in these cultures for centuries. Fortunately, few speciesare peacock used for food today, except some of the more remote and less civilized, where they are in nature. View print magazine to learn more about the fascination for a long time with the human and cultural aspects of a peacock.

Peacocks term can refer to two species of birds in the genus Pavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae. The African Congo peacock is placed in its own genus and Afropavo is not here. Peafowl are best known for the extravagant tail of the male is shown as part of courtship. The male is called a peacock, and a female peacock. The female peacock is brown or gray and brown toned.

Both species are:
Peacock, Pavo cristatus, a resident breeder in southern Asia. The peacock is designated as the national bird of India and the bird of the province of Punjab.

Green peacock, Pavo muticus. Breeds from Burma east to Java. The IUCN lists the Green peacocks at risk of extinction due to hunting and to reduce the extent and quality of habitat.

Male (peacock) Indian Peacock has iridescent plumage blue-green or green. Peacock tail feathers of the tail feathers of the tail coverts, which can not very elongated. "Eyes" is best seen when a peacock fans its tail. Both species are the Crest at the top of the head. Women (peacock) Indian peacock is a mixture of dull green, brown and gray in her plumage. It is not a long-tail coverts of the men, but it's Crest. A female can also display their plumage to counter competition from women, or signal of danger for young people.

Green peacock is different from the Indian peacock. The male is green and gold plumage and a crest vertical. Wings are black, shiny blue. Unlike the Indian peacock, peahen Green is the man himself, just having a shorter tail coverts and less iridescent. It 'difficult to say to a woman young adult male.

Male Indian peacock, commonly known as the peacock, is one of the best known birds of the world. These large colorful birds, the crest of a characteristic and unmistakable ornamental train. Rail accounts for more than 60% of the total body length. Together with a large gap, this train is a male peacock of the largest birds in the world. The train is formed in a highly specialized market uppertail coverts 100-150. Each of these pens, decorative sports ocellus, or eye-spots, and has long disintegrated barbs, when the feathers a loose, fluffy appearance. When the women's products, a peacock, this train will set up a big fan of ocelli is shown at its best.

Crow [Kingdom: Animalia, Phylum: Chordata, Class:Aves, Order: Passeriformes, Family: Corvidae, Genus: Corvus]

Crows are large passerine birds that comprise the genus Corvus Corvidae family. Relatively small size of a pigeon jackdaws Common Raven is a Holarctic region and Thick-billed Raven is a plateau in Ethiopia there are about 40 members of this genus in all continents and in temperate seas and other oceanic islands. In the United States and Canada, the word "crow" is used to refer to the American Crow.

The raven is like a third of species of the corvid family. Other corvids crows and jays. Crows appear to have evolved in Asia the corvid stock, which had evolved in Australia. A group of crows is called a herd or a murder.

Recent research has found some species of crow is not only able to use the tool, but the construction of the instrument as well. Ravens are considered one of the most intelligent animals. Jackdaw and the neostriatum were found about the same as a relative can be found in chimpanzees and humans, and much more that can be found in Gibbon.

Ravens apparently evolved in central Asia and radiated in North America, Africa, Europe and Australia.

Recent data for the downhill trend suggesting crow family Corvidae Australian. But the industry that produce the modern groups such as jays and magpies had large predominantly black Corvus left Australasia and Asia was concentrated in time Corvus evolved. Corvus has since returned to Australia and produced a species with five recognized subspecies.

The family was originally described in Linnaeus in his 18 th century work Systema Naturae. The name derives from the Latin corvus meaning "raven."

The type species is the common raven (Corvus corax), while others mentioned in the same work includes Carrion Crow, the hooded crow, Jackdaw and the tower. The genre was wider than Magpie was designated C. pica before later being moved to a genre of its own. There are now regarded as at least 42 existing species in this genus, and at least 14 extinct species have been described.

There is no good systematic approach to the family at this time. In general, it is assumed that the type of geographic area are more closely related to other lineages, but this is not necessarily correct. For example, when the complex Carrion / collar / House Crow is certainly closely related, the situation is not at all clear regarding the Australian / Melanesian species. In addition, many species are similar in appearance to determine the actual range and characteristics can be very difficult, such as Australia, where five species are nearly identical in appearance.

Fossils of crows is densest in Europe, but relationships among most prehistoric species is unclear. The latest evidence seems to point to a family from Australia at the beginning (Corvidae), although the industry that produce the modern groups such as jays, magpies and large predominantly black Corvus crows had left Australasia and Asia are developing . Corvus has returned to Australia and produced a species with five recognized subspecies.
