There are a lot of them on farms in the area. They make a lot of noise, too. Do a google image search and you'll see they look pretty similar.
That's what it was exactly! Very cute!

Yes, we do have wild peacocks, pea hens, and even quail. I am born and raised on St.Thomas out on the east end of the island. I saw them all the time. I used to see them most up in the hills around north side and four corners. I also used to see them on the east end around harmony estates. We also have deer and boa constrictors.

Sure it wasn't a wild turkey? We've seen several the last few weeks.

Where in Tampa? I haven't seen one yet, maybe the gators ate them. I rented an apartment in Raleigh that had two peacocks near the mailboxes and clubhouse. They were kinda aggressive and my girlfriend was terrified of them. All the neighbors complained about them, but the apt. manager never did anything.

Yes, I'm sure you saw peacocks/peahens. I boarded my horse at a farm here and the owners had 1 peahen. After a few months, a peacock showed up. They had no idea where he came from.

I used to see them past Town and Country headed to Oldsmar (I forgot the name of that road, but it's a main road). Funny that they're here too.

After I posted the first post I went back to the dog park and there was a guinea hen ON THE FENCE about to jump in to the dog park. My dog was losing her mind, That farmer would have had one fewer hen had that happened, I'm sure

Tampa Rd/Hillsborough Ave.? I went through there today on my way to Palm Harbor and didn't see any, but I wasn't looking. I'll pay more attention next time I'm in the area. My dog would've made lunch out of that hen.

I'm not kidding, I've seen one in the drive-thru at Burger King. That was actually the first time I've seen one.
