“Proud as a Peacock” unfurls the mysteries of the peafowl’s plumage and the courting secrets and rituals. Join a bird walk and follow the Peacock Discovery Trail. Dress as a peacock! And participate in peacock crafts (well, mostly for the little ones, but don’t be held back!)
The blue peacock originally comes from India and Sri Lanka, so in order to celebrate “the homeland,” Ragas & Rhythms with Paul Livingstone performs Indian classics, the library exhibits peacock art, and the day’s menu is inspired by Indian food.
