The video was shared on Twitter by a user @ethirajans, who himself was the man featuring in it. It was captured by the user himself while offering the rice to the peacock by hand. The creature seemed at ease and friendly, and was not daunted by the human hand offering him the food. The peacock pecked at a few rice grains with its beak and then retrieved its head for more.
The adorable video caught the attention of Twitterati, who couldn’t get over the majestic bird being fed without fuss. The Indian Peacock, which is touted to be the National bird of India, is often a delight to be spotted in public gardens and forested areas. However, a view of the bird at such close quarters thrilled the ecstatic viewers. Netizens poured in their reactions to the video, as they were truly impressed by the feat. Some Twitter users also expressed their concern about how the constant pecking of the Peacock might hurt the hand of the man. Take a look at the reactions:

That is not important- more amazing to see how the peacock picks the grains with its sharp beaks without hurting the palm!
