Birds and Their Color Palettes

What a great idea! The COLOURlovers site presents a collection of 18 beautiful birds and their color palettes.

In sizes ranging from the tiny hummingbird to the tall earthbound ostrich or emu, birds of the world show us color in a huge number of arrangements — 9,000 to 10,000 species to be more exact.

Males mostly do the more vibrant presentations to attract mates, while females are usually muted and earth tone to guard their homes and their eggs, but either way, it seems that birds of a feather have the right idea when it comes to great colors.

Here is my favorite picture from the site along with it’s color palette: the Brazilian Red Cap Cardinal.

I love cardinals anyways, and this one is simply stunning. Be sure to visit the COLOURlovers site for more great photos of birds and their palettes. God is definitely the master designer when it comes to patterns and color.
