Top Ten Birds with Beautiful and Unique Tails

The tails of these birds are beautiful and unique. Which bird do you think has the most beautiful and unique tail?

The Top Ten

1 Peacock Peacock The peafowl include two Asiatic bird species (the blue or Indian peafowl originally of India and Sri Lanka and the green peafowl of Myanmar, Indochina, and Java) and one African species (the Congo peafowl native only to the Congo Basin) of bird in the genera Pavo and Afropavo of the Phasianidae family, more.

Fun fact: the "tail" of a male peacock is not actually its tail. It's real tail can be seen behind the false "tail" when it's opened.

I remember those peacocks. Peacocks are sweet, innocent ones. - Fandomstuck
