peacock prefers to live in the open forests. However, they are also seen in the orchards often. It hunts for its prey either at the dawn or just before sunset. Its diet includes a variety of things including grains, berries, crops, figs as well as insects, small mammals and reptiles.The Indian peacock is very well protected by the Indian Wild Life protection Act. However the peacock has displayed remarkable adaptability and adjusted itself to the changing surroundings. Therefore peacock no longer requires any particular attention for conservation. No special projects have been undertaken so far to ensure its safety.
