Bird of the Week Challenge: 28th April - colour dominos

Morning everyone and welcome to another week and another challenge.

This week's suggestion (from another member - thank you!) is colour dominos. The aim is to post a photo of a bird with the same colour, or the same colour +other colour/s as the poster before you. 

e.g. Post one is a Raven (black), post two is a Magpie-lark (black and white), post three is a White-faced heron (grey and white).

 

Here are the guidelines. Please make sure you give them a good read before posting. I can clarify things if needed.

  • The colours are for the feathers only (would open it up too much to include leg colour, eye colour etc).
  • The bird you post has to have at least one of the colours of the previous bird in it.
  • When you post your photo, also specify, in writing, the colours in the feathers as there is likely to be some different descriptions of colours.
  • Just needs to match the general colour, not light or dark versions (though by all means, match light or dark if you want).
  • You can post more than once, but there needs to be at least 2 posters in between your entries.

 

Who is going to kick it off with the first bird + colour!

Not sure if I agree that the red Browed finch has a true yellow in it but here is one for that anyway as colours can be subjective at times...
