The White Peacock is frequently mistaken for an albino, but it is a colour variety of Indian Blue Peacock. The term peafowl can refer to the two species of bird in the genus Pavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae. The male is called a peacock, the female a peahen, though it is common to hear the female also referred to as a peacock or female peacock . The male Indian Peafowl has iridescent blue-green or green coloured plumage. The so-called tail of the peacock, also termed the train , is not the tail quill feathers but highly elongated upper tail coverts. The train feathers have a series of eyes that are best seen when the tail is fanned. Both species have a crest atop the head.
