Mrs. Sturz wrote in her book about Argus that she started her work in the Bronx for the simplest of reasons: “I wanted to leave a footprint somewhere, perhaps even a wing beat.”Flannery O'Connor, peacock owner, would have loved this too....
She chose the name from the Greek myth of Argus, the giant of many eyes. After his death, a compassionate goddess, not wanting this wonder to pass from the world, gathered up the giant’s eyes and placed them in the tail of the peacock, a bird of transcendent beauty.
