Ketchikan, Alaska - It is said that the song of the peacock is
a call for rain. If this is true, then Mr. P. Kaku's recent winter
dance and song has brought yet another rainy day to Ketchikan.
Mr. P. Kaku is one of six peafowl
that thrive in Ketchikan given special housing and care. This
bevy, which includes two adult peacocks, two adult peahens and
two young peacocks are members of the Kauffman family.
Mr.P. Kaku - A Ketchikan
Adult males have their first colorful tails at the age of three.
According Dan Hart, with the Federal Aviation Administration's
Flight Service Station in Ketchikan, 2.97 inches of rain has
been recorded at the Ketchikan airport from midnight Thursday
through 11:05 Friday morning. More heavy rain is expected throughout
And for those wondering just
where the peafowl are during this rainy day, they are snuggy
and dry - perched high in their heated peafowl house.
