When it comes to the Missouri peacock’s population, the northernmost state is a good place to be, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
The Missouri Peache are a migratory bird that migrate from south to north to breed and nest.
When the birds breed, the birds produce a large amount of egg and the chicks are often referred to as “snowflake” birds, which is how they are named in the United States.
A large number of peacocks have been documented in the Missouri, and a few have been recorded in Oklahoma.
The Missouri peacoock population is estimated at up to 50,000 birds.
It is one of the largest migratory birds in the world, and one of its biggest threats to humans and other wildlife is the spread of the Lyme disease.
“They can be seen as a species of threat to people,” says Michael D. Burch, the director of the Center for Conservation Biology at the University of Missouri.
“They’re a very aggressive bird, and they do attack and kill, and their breeding season is usually very short.”
Burch says the Missouri population of peacoocks is now declining, and if it continues, they will likely have to be moved out of the state, possibly to Florida or New Jersey.
“If they go south, then you would see the migration in a much more reduced population,” he says.
“There’s no indication they’re going to go back north, but it would be an area where people are likely to encounter them.”
