A commission for Dark Natasha, as she requested a gryphon flying with birds, and gave me the option to make it peacock-based!
The birds are Imperial Pied Pigeons, native to India (as are wild Indian peafowl).
Peafowl can fly-- even with their trains fully grown-- but they are not necessarily agile and graceful like the pigeons are. I imagine that PeaGryph here is a bit exasperated with his companions...

This has a lot of iridescent pigments and as such didn't scan terribly well.
