CRISFIELD, Md.- Three peacocks have become the talk of Crisfield. There have been sightings at Carter G. Woodson Elementary School, on Main Street and Somerset Avenue and other locations in this Somerset County community.
For the most part, the birds have been welcomed to the city.
"They're not bothering anybody. They're just being nosy just looking around. They don't really hurt anybody," says Mary Rubio of Crisfield.
However, there have been some reports about the birds being on top of residents cars and pecking at windows and some say they've heard others complain. Lola Piskor of Crisfield said, "If they're somebody's pet they should take them home and take care of them. They're not really hurting anybody I don't think, but people are complaining over the noise."
Crisfield City Inspector Noah Bradshaw said because the birds are not really a nuisance, there is nothing that can be done about them.
"There isn't a law against peacocks so there's nothing I can do," Bradshaw said.
The birds have sparked quite an interest in the city. They even have a Facebook page with well over 200 members.
