A rare Indian Blue peacock has been captured in New Delhi’s Narmada area.

The bird was spotted on Friday and has now been flown to the Zoological Gardens of New Delhi for identification.

The animal has been named India Blue after the colour of the colour spectrum in the Indian flag.

It has been brought to the zoo to be named after the famous poet Ajay Devgn.

The Bird Conservancy (BC) has also been in touch with the owner of the bird.

The BC has been in contact with the bird’s owner and has informed him that it will be brought back to the conservancy soon.

The peacock was spotted by a photographer for the wildlife conservation organisation Wildlife Watch India who took a photograph of it and posted it on Twitter.

India Blue is a subspecies of the oriental black-chinned peacock, but is not considered to be endangered.
