LA Times story about Baldwin, his peacocks made excellent watchdogs. I can attest to that, because by the time I grew up in Arcadia, a large population of peacocks freely roamed the city's Arboretum and nearby neighborhoods. They are a mighty sight to behold, but man, do they make a ruckus. For the most part, I prefer peacock designs that aren't as loud or ornamental as their real-life counterparts. It pleases me to see so many peacock (and peacock-inspired) designs out there that would suit any kind of home decor, even minimalist. Like a peacock's magnificent tail feathers, these designs make a statement, no matter how subtle.
