Palawan Peacock Pheasant

The Palawan peacock pheasant is named for the markings on the male bird's tail feathers which resemble the "eyes" of a peacock's tail.

During the breeding season the male offers food to any females nearby. If one accepts the food, he will display to her by spreading and shaking his brightly marked tail.
