Peacock spreads his wings in Port Richmond

They say birds of a feather flock together, but tell that to a peacock who is strutting around a truck yard in Port Richmond.

Neighbors say the peacock appeared in a truck yard Friday behind Philadelphia Suzuki in the 2400 block of Castor Avenue.

While they appreciate seeing the beautifully feathered bird in the neighborhood, residents fear the bird will wander onto the major highway and get killed in traffic.

They say they have called Animal Control, Wildlife and the Philadelphia Zoo, but the bird remains in the truck yard.

Neighbors are giving the peacock food and water, but hopes someone will come to its aid with some form of shelter.
