Yes, there are peacocks in Poland! In Warsaw, to be exact. Most unexpectedly, I saw them in the distance hanging out with a few ducks and almost couldn’t believe they were really peacocks. Like a star-crossed fan, I rushed over to them to take their picture – and they didn’t even care! Though I did rush slowly so not to totally scare them. They must be used to people; they were practically photogenic. There were a handful of them at the Ujazdowski Park, which is quite large and tree-filled. It’s beautiful in January so I can only imagine how pretty it is during the warmer months.
Until now, I thought those fun, giant birdies preferred the warmer climates. Apparently not. A few of them were standing IN the snow.
The peacocks were only a very small snippet of my very incredible day adventuring around Warsaw. I have a video of the city I will post on here when I can connect with my laptop. Sadly, the wordpress app I’m using off my phone is proving itself useless.
