2 peacocks roost at post office in central Ohio

ORIENT, Ohio (AP) — Customers at a central Ohio post office are getting an unusual greeting from a pair of peacocks that have taken to roosting on the roof and roaming the parking lot.

The birds have settled in at a post office in Orient, less than 15 miles southwest of Columbus.

Local resident Daisy Orsbon says though the birds make plenty of noises, they mostly stand near the door and don't really bother anybody.

WBNS-TV reports post office officials aren't sure where the peacocks came from. None of the area farms that have peacocks have claimed the birds.

For now, they're simply being allowed to roam the site.
