The Peacock is a rare bird in Middle-earth.

It is a bird with blue and green coloring, and small beady eyes. For weapon use, its feathers were used for fletching for Legolas's Lothlórien arrows.

A peacock is depicted also on Legolas's Lothlórien quiver. It seems that the elves of Lothlorien admired the peacock as it shows up on their works. (Like bows, quivers, fletching, etc.)
