With the end of May approaching, chances to watch the wild peacocks of Galveston court on a regular basis are going to dwindle as the birds tend to lie low in summer's heat.
The wild peacocks live around Fabian's Kennel next to the Country Club. They first were brought in to decorate the links, decades ago. The peacocks have since thrived and can be found in flocks around the Pirate Beach neighborhoods and the area of 10 Mile Road.
April and May are peak months in their courtship, where the male spreads out its feathers and waves them in magnificent displays.
