All birds have wings then why Bird like peacock cannot fly

Expert Answer
  • Peacocks are long adapted to be ground birds that feed mainly on the ground and many can effectively escape from danger on foot. 
  • They are also often primarily forest birds and since they are largely active on ground, flying is not always an effective way to escape from danger. 
  • Therefore, they are generally evolved to have shorter and rounder wings, which are less powerful in flight. 
  • They are also often much larger and heavier than other birds which made it tough for them to fly fast as well.
