Peacock at Amabiki Kannon

Amabiki Kannon has a large collection of peacocks who are free to roam around the temple complex. I heard from one of the tourists that there are 25 males and 10 females in total. When I went, I saw about 6 males and 1 female. I took a short video of one of the males because I thought it was really neat to see him strut around, and even more cool to see how he put his feathers down “post-strut”.
