    One reason this article ^ interested me is that I was stationed on the coast in that area for a few months in the summer of 1968, at a place the Americans called Chu Lai, which is not on current Vietnam maps. The hinterland was forested uplands that were patrolled by U.S. infantry. One young soldier who was on a patrol back in there told me he saw a peacock tail feather. That would be the Green Peafowl that is rare in Vietnam nowadays. It is the national bird of Thailand, but is not the same species as the Indian Peafowl.
