 A quietly funny story of how the peacock got his wonderful tail. It starts in the depths of Winter in the days when all birds are naked! With the help of the Spring moon, they grow feathers. All except Peacock...

His friends each give him a feather of their own which eventually becomes the colourful  tail we see today. A very small gift can become something of great beauty.
