Green peafowl in Shuangbai county, Chuxiong Yi Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Yunnan Province, have recently entered a new breeding season. Footage showed a green peacock chick fanning out its tail and displaying its unfolded feathers to its mother.

Under first-class national protection in the country, the green peafowl is China's only native peafowl, with just 600 estimated to be left in Yunnan Province.
