Rome's Passionist Peacocks

Atop the Caelean Hill in the garden of the General House of the Passionists you will see peacocks. This is the albino male.

They have poor night vision and so yours truly was able to get close for this pic. The males sleep atop the runis of Nero's old aquaduct that runs through the garden and during the winter only the males shed their lovely feathers.
