There are thousands of different beautiful species of birds on earth that it would take all of our lives forever to list them all, to photograph them all, to describe them all.
In this article, I want to show you a few of the many who I find just staggering.
Whether it’s for camouflage or attracting a mate, the birds listed below have all the colors of the rainbow in their beautiful feathers!
Southern Ground Hornbill
Red bellied Fruit-dove
Birds’ bodies are beautifully designed for flight, with strong chest muscles and just enough curve to their wings to provide lift. Differences in wing shape provide different advantages to the various bird species. The narrow, sharp-tipped wings of the falcon provide speed; albatrosses soar high on wings much longer than they are wide.
Staggering Wing Pattern
Most songbirds have elliptical, evenly shaped wings that facilitate quick, small movements in the tight spaces of their tree homes. Swimming birds, such as penguins and puffins, have flipper-shaped wings that propel them rapidly and gracefully through water.
