Seriously, why did biologists/linguists/etc. ever think "fowl" was a fair term for all kinds of squee bird friends? It's a word that sounds far too close to another word that does not describe them in any way at all!

This splendid white peahen is quite the diva, outshining even the most outrageous showgirl. I'd go see her perform in Las Vegas anytime!

Someday this squee squirt will have a beautiful headdress. Today it's a bit of a bedhead situation, but I think that's even cuter!
