Angie added: “But then when Elvis was home the myna birds would continue to tell people, ‘Elvis isn’t home right now! Elvis isn’t home right now!’ Even though he was home which was kind of funny.”
Despite being fond of birds, The King actually ended up banning peacocks from Graceland, banishing them to Memphis Zoo after one incident.
Elvis had liked the birds, known in some religions to represent eternal life, and had stained glass panels of them put up by the Music Room.
These peacocks were designed in 1974 by his girlfriend of the time Linda Thompson.
