I also have a video of the peacock just standing there doing nothing. That was taken just between his loud noisy challenge to the world (especially, I guess, to people on the path and to other peacocks in the park), and his tail fan.
Here "albino" is pronounced to rhyme with "Beano". In the U.S., Beano is an over-the-counter fart-preventative. Beanogas.com I bring this link here even though when I looked it up (within the UK), it has a disclaimer that says it's intended for U.S. Residents over the age of 18. Wondering why that would be, I looked around a bit more and discovered that in the U.K., Beano refers to a British comic that's been coming out since the 1930's.
So Americans say alBYEno to rhyme with "wino." Maybe the Brits say "weeno" for wino. They seem to call a weiner "saveloy." And they say "vih ta min" for "vitamin" (which has a long 'i' in north America, though I shouldn't speak for Canada, I guess).
More images of those peacocks by various other people in the world:
