A peacock is on the loose in New York City after escaping from the Central Park Zoo today.
The zoo, which has already had two other high profile escapees including a pea hen and a cobra, says the peacock poses no danger to anyone.
Zoo-keepers are asking anyone who spots the peacock 'not to follow or harass the bird.'
Spokeswoman Mary Dixon says they're hopeful the male peacock will either fly back or be retrieved nearby.
The bird apparently found a comfortable perch on the fifth-story window ledge of a nearby building on Tuesday.
The daring bird has obviously taken a leaf from fellow escapees after setting up his 'own' Twitter account.
Calling himself the 'Peacock in the City', this is one bird with a lot of attitude.
This evening he tweeted: 'Just finished dinner at a Chinese restaurant and I'm relieved to find out that the peacock fantasy is actually chicken!'
And like the rest of New York, it appears even peacocks suffer in the stifling heat.
Earlier today he wrote: 'Anyone know of any good anti-friz products? This humidity is killing my feathers!'
In March, a venomous Egyptian cobra was found nearly a week after it went missing from the Bronx Zoo's Reptile House.
