I struggled to describe the colours of a Brown Honeyeater let alone respond to Plum (purple/red) but here goes.. Crested Pigeon.. Plum sort of with Light Brown... Does this make sense?

The Straw-necked Ibis. Matching white, pick any of the shiny colours you like. I think shiny Blue looks good.

From the rules

"The next bird must match (and the poster must also nominate) one of those colours"

Seem pretty clear?

Shorty's right though, there was nothing wrong with his post.  I think the "asking for" could be accidentally confusing to some.  Just pick one of the colours from the two nominated in BOLD in the last post, one that is also a colour in your bird, and then pick another from your post/bird.  So the next post/poster always has two colours to choose from (edited: unless the bird is only one colour of course).  Pretty straightforward, as are Holly's rules redone. smiley

Anyway, no dramas.  To keep it rolling:  Matching YELLOW and adding WHITE
