A few weeks ago I encountered a peacock while driving to a friend's house in Central KY, USA. I don't believe I've ever seen a peacock in KY, and when attempting to ID [just through Google searches], I could only find restaurants & musical artists that contain "peacock" in their name.
Can someone help me ID this bird? And, are peacocks wild in KY? Have they always been, and are just rare? Aside from species ID, any insights about this bird and its prevalence within KY would be most appreciated.
