Would someone identify this bird for me? I had the pleasure of visiting the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden last year; this little guy unexpectedly caught and captivated my attention. The arboretum, by the way, made for a horticulturally inspiring experience, despite the rain drenched cloud that persistently hovered over me. The unassuming attitudes of peacocks draping the walls surrounding the courtyard area was just one of the many visual pleasures. Put this arboretum on your "must visit" list.
