  The majestic white peacock
by ChrsStrl

The birds on the island are, literally, dazzling. It seems that not only do white and the more usual blue-green peacock wander freely here, so, too, do golden, silver & emperor pheasants! A colony of parrots also lives freely here, though the small green one we saw outside the cage seemed most anxiously trying to commune with those within!

Address: Isola Madre
