Comment of the Day: Where the Houston Peafowl Hang

COMMENT OF THE DAY: WHERE THE HOUSTON PEAFOWL HANG Drawing of Peacock“Additional peacock groups: in the Rivercrest subdivision 77042 – approximately 1 block West of Gessner, North of Westheimer Rd., on the south ends of E. Rivercrest & W. Rivercrest. Access from Briar Forest Dr. one light north of Westheimer, use Gessner as access is blocked @ Westheimer; Also on the East side of Austin St., just north of Rosedale St., 77004 (north of the Children’s Museum, in the Binz District). Also, east of Dairy Ashford, north of Briar Forest Dr. — there are lakes tucked into the Ashford Forest subdivision and there’s a flock of Pea Fowl aka peacocks. I used to live in far North Harris County — near Hooks Airport on 100 acres, which had 12 peacocks- 1 female and 11 males. The mating ritual is hilarious.” [Padraig, commenting on New Vargos on the Lake Won’t Serve You Dinner, but You Can Cook in the Kitchen Yourself, and Stay a Whole Lot Longer] Illustration: Lulu

  • There are a ton of them in Garden Villas.

  • There are also peacocks in the Garden Villas neighborhood in SE Houston, near Hobby Airport.

  • If anyone would like to see our “musters” of peacocks, there is one group on the east side of the neighborhood, typically on Brace Street near the intersection with S. Haywood, and one on the west side, along Alpine Street. They love our large lots! The males have been showing off lately.
