... how males selectively direct their attention to make these assessments. Using Indian peafowl ( Pavo cristatus ) as a model system, we examined how males visually assess their competitors by continuously tracking the gaze of freely moving peacocks during the mating season. When assessing rivals...

... understanding of eye and head movements in mammals, we know little about these processes in birds. We therefore measured the eye and head movements of freely behaving Indian peafowl ( Pavo cristatus ) using a telemetric eye-tracker. Both eye and head movements contributed to gaze changes in peafowl. When gaze...

Females gazed at the lower train but largely ignored the head, crest and upper train. When the lower train was obscured, however...

...Nathan S. Hart SUMMARY The visual sense of the Indian blue-shouldered peafowl Pavo cristatus was investigated with respect to the spectral absorption characteristics of the retinal photoreceptors, the spectral transmittance of the ocular media and the topographic distribution of cells...
