The Indian peafowl (Pavo cristatus) is a bird in the family Phasianidae native to South Asia. The male (the peacock) differs from the female (the peahen) in that it displays a much brighter plumage and a distinctive train of long tail feathers, which it spreads out in mating rituals.
The caption reads in the original German:
Der gemeine Pfau (Pavo cristatus).
