Palawan Peacock-Pheasant, A Striking Bird With Iridescent Blue-Green Plumage And Mohawk

94 views 17 April 2021

The Palawan peacock-pheasant is an outstanding bird. It has iridescent blue-green plumage and Mohawk, making them conspicuous whenever they are. The black underparts and white stripes above (and below) the eyes also create more charm for this creature.


This bird’s peacock-like tail with characteristic patterns is eye-catching, too.

Unlike male birds with stunning features above, female Palawan peacock-pheasants are a dull grey-brown color.

This beautiful bird species is native to the island of Palawan in the southern Philippines. They live on the ground and prefer dense vegetation.
