FourFourSeconds ago, it was the golden-coloured peafowler, now the black-and-gold peafoose is the best bird in India.
Its just that its not the only one, said Suman Ramaswamy, a bird specialist at the University of New Delhi.
Peafowl are an important species of birds, he said, with up to 100 species in India and over 100 on the international species list.
They have a wide range of colours and patterns and their long-winged, yellow-feathered bills, long legs and pointed beaks are very popular.
The bird is also the most endangered of the Indian wild birds, with only 2,000 in existence.
But the peafower is not the first bird to get a makeover.
In the 19th century, the British were fascinated by the long-tailed peafow, which they thought looked more like a blackbird than a black-tailed pigeon.
The peacock has also been a popular pet of American colonial rulers.
It has also inspired several other species, including the Indian white-tailed parrot and the peacock-sized parrot.
The peafood has a very wide range, with over 100 species and over 30 in IndiaThe black-eyed peafoodle is another popular bird in the country and its not just because of its long-tail.
Its also a symbol of strength and strength of character.
Its one of the most beautiful birds in the world.
Its a true bird of the sky, said Ramaswsamy.

Its also about the plumage.
Its the black, blue or red on its body, said Nalin Sharma, a specialist at Wildlife Conservation Society of India (WCSI).
Its called the iridescent color and its a way to distinguish it from other birds like parrots, kestrels, black-throated sparrows, and pigeons, he added.
Its called a black plumage because of the black colour on the plumages, said Sharma.
Its actually a very popular pet in India because of their black plumages.
Its called a blue plumage, because of a blue colour on their plumage is the way they are called black birds in their native language, said Yadav Pandey, a conservationist.
Its the most popular bird breed in India, with around 2,500 varieties, said Chandra Kapoor, a member of WCSI.
