No place like home: Peacock flies back to NYC zoo

NEW YORK On Tuesday, humans flocked and tweeted as the peacock left the zoo for a perch on a Fifth Avenue window ledge. It had good taste: A condo there reportedly sold for $22.5 million in 2009.

Zookeepers predicted the handsome green and blue bird would make its way home -- and it did just before 7 a.m. Wednesday.

It's been a rebellious season in the city zoos.

In March, an Egyptian cobra was found nearly a week after it went missing at the Bronx Zoo's Reptile House. Two months later, a zoo peahen was recovered at a nearby auto-body shop.
