This pic shows two of the numerous peafowl that roam  the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park in Carlsbad.  One of the residents is pure white and quite spectacular. These two are standing on top of the bunkhouse.  Native to India, peacocks are normally an iridescent shade of blue while peahens are a more subdued brown, cream or gray.

Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park

We just discovered the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park in Carlsbad and found all the historic adobe buildings most interesting.  The land and buildings were once part of a 2,538 acre working ranch owned by Leo Carrillo who portrayed “Pancho” in the Cisco Kid TV series of the 1950’s.  This building is called “Deedie’s House” and was a place for Leo’s wife to escape and create art.
