Some sort of weird Asian peacock like bird (which is actually a Green Peafowl apparently) from the Wings of Asia Aviary at Miami MetroZoo.

Thank you Stavenn for identifying it for me.

  1. There’s no real Black Peacock, there is the bluish black Congo Peafowl, but it looks totally different. it’s a cute little bird with a more straw-like crest and red facial skin.

    The Green Peafowl is often brilliant golden green in sunlight, but in the dark it can look very dull and black. This one looks like a Burmese spicifer, which is duller than the other forms of Green Peafowl.
