The Grey Peacock-pheasant, Polyplectron bicalcaratum also known as Burmese Peacock is a large Southeast Asian member of the order Galliformes. It is rather closely related to the peafowl (Pavo), and like these – and like most other Polyplectron – has brilliant eyespots on its plumage. It is the national bird of Myanmar.
The Grey Peacock-pheasant is distributed in lowland and hill forests of mainland Southeast Asia, but excluding most of Indochina as well as the entire Malayan Peninsula. The diet consists mainly of seeds, termites, fruits and invertebrates.
