Collective Nouns: A Muster of Peacocks, An Ostentation of Peacocks
Green Peafowl are large birds, one of the largest living Galliforms in  terms of overall length and wingspan, though rather lighter-bodied than  the Wild Turkey.
The male grows up to 3 meters (10 ft) long, including the “train” (which we consider the tail) and  weighs up to 5 kg (11 lbs). 
The female is 1.1 meter (3.5 ft) long and  weighs about 5.1 kg (2.4 lbs). 
It has large wingspan of approximately  1.2 m (4 ft). 
The Green Peafowl is capable of sustained flight and is  often observed on wing.
In 2005, The Star reported that successful reintroductions were being made in Malaysia by the World Pheasant Association (WPA).
