The Indian peafowl a.k.a. peahen is the female equivalent of a peacock and is commonly found in the wild in regions of South Asia and Southeast Asia. Unlike peacocks, peahens do not have the flamboyant and colorful feathers that peacocks are known for. They have a more understated appearance with brown or gray feathers and lack the distinctive long tail feathers of peacocks. Peahens are important for their role in breeding and raising the next generation of peafowl, and they are also a popular subject for wildlife photography and nature enthusiasts.
