Honey Is a free roaming, wild Spalding peahen who lives in luscious Coconut Grove, Florida. She has a beautiful white, star marking on her throat, and yellow around her eyes. This time she has only one chick, a male, Sugar. In fact, for the last three years, she has only had one chick each season.I named her Honey because she is very loving and protective of Sugar. However, she is the most territorial and aggressive peahen , a behavior she demonstrates when other peafowl approach Sugar. Here in fact, it can be clearly seen she bullies away other peacocks so her chick can eat cat food and bird seed undisturbed. Usually, there is a clear zone around the two of them as no peafowl dare approach. After feeding, today Sugar turns around and sits by mom where he feels safe. Lately, however, he has shown similar independent and domineering traits as mom. He lunches toward other peafowl,often wonders on his own, and Honey spends much time looking for him with a piercing sonorous cry characteristic of all peahens looking for misplaced chicks.Mom gives a beautiful lesson on feather self- care . Honey has gorgeous, thick, healthy plumage . It is a beautiful day in Florida. It is a great place to be a peacock.
