Peacock A crowd watched a peacock spread its tail and show its dazzling plumage on day in a park zoo. The bird drew oohs and aahs from the people as it strutted regally about its pen.

Peacock & DuckThen a dull-brown duck waddled between the peacock and the crowd. The peacock became angry and drove the duck back into the nearby pond. In its rage, the peacock’s tail closed like a fan and the bird seemed ugly.
