I can tell you that peacocks are aggressive birds, and they were known to peck on people's campers quite a bit.CottontailCurl said:Thats such a nice story, i miss them too! We were in a preferred loop also one time and there were 5 of them around our motorhome. We used to love driving the electric cart around and spotting them in different areas. I have no idea why Disney removed them.
I personally miss the peacocks tons, they were such a part of Ft. Wilderness to me. However, my fiancee and I just bought a house in Delray Beach, Florida, a month and a half ago. And look what we have tons of in our neighborhood....
That is on top of our house by the way, there must be at least 8 females, quite a few babies, and about 4 or 5 males (the males are the ones with the pretty colors, the females, such as the one in the picture, do not have any color).
Needless to say, I am constantly reminded of Ft. Wilderness every day. Especially when having a nice morning breakfast on the patio and you hear the sound of the peacock, that high pitched kazoo type sound, reminds me every time of Ft. Wilderness.
