If you’re exploring the southernmost tip of the South Bay you may run into a wild peacock or two. Some say the origin of these exotic birds began with a gift. Frank Vanderlip, the original founder of the Palos Verdes Project in the mid-1920’s received a gift of 16 birds. Now, there are reportedly hundreds of them calling the area home. The birds roam the streets and grace the rooftops in the city.

The males are known for their vividly colorful plumage. Local residents drive carefully – especially during mating season when you might be lucky enough to witness fanned feather and fancy footwork.
