Palos Verdes Peacocks

Palos Verdes Peacocks have been around here since the early 1900s and where there were just a few, there are now a lot; and in some neighborhoods a whole bunch of them.

The city of Rancho Palos Verdes has just released their Peafowl Management Plan which you can download right here:

Where did the Palos Verdes Peacocks come from?

Francine A. Bradley, Ph.D. UC Davis, in a report to the City of Rancho Palos Verdes on managing peafowl on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, states that the original peacock colony on the Palos Verdes Peninsula was a gift of 16 birds from the daughter of William Wrigley, Jr. to Frank Vanderlip, the original founder of the Palos Verdes Project in the mid 1920’s, from Mr. Wrigley’s aviary on Catalina Island. These birds were maintained at the Vanderlip Estate in Portuguese Bend. It is suspected that some of the birds were introduced to Palos Verdes Estates by former mayor Fred Roessler sometime in the period from 1960-65. There are now numerous colonies in Rancho Palos Verdes in the Crestridge, Vista Grande, and the Portuguese Bend areas, as well as in the Lunada Bay and Malaga Cove areas of Palos Verdes Estates.

The City Council of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, at 7:00 PM at Hesse Park Community Building, 29301 Hawthorne Boulevard, Rancho Palos Verdes, to consider adopting the City’s Peafowl Management Plan (PMP), along with adopting an Environmental Assessment/Negative Declaration prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (Case No. ZON2015-00326).  The PMP is a City initiated plan to humanely manage the peafowl population within the boundary limits of the City by reducing and maintaining the peafowl population to the levels identified in the 2000 Peafowl Census Report. The PMP will support the coexistence of peafowl within the semi–rural character of the City by using the following methods:

• Public Education & Deterrent Measures
• Humane Trapping & Relocation of up to 150 birds per year in order to maintain the 2000 peafowl population.
