The most beautiful birds
We offer you to get acquainted with the photos of the ten most amazing birds. Naturally, there are thousands of noteworthy birds, and they are all so different, each stands out in its own way.
Lorium parrots are small parrots with a bright color in all colors of the rainbow. They live in Australia, New Guinea, Indonesia and the Philippines. There are strange stories about these beautiful birds: supposedly they start to fall every spring, forcing Australians to carry them to vet clinics.
The American Kestrel - oddly enough it is the most elegant and small predatory bird. They can be found throughout the Western Hemisphere: from Canada in the north to the Falkland Islands in the south.
Atlantic Puffin - surprisingly trusting birds for this reason and got their name. These birds feed on small fish and marine invertebrates. They nest in groups or colonies along the steep sea shores of the North Atlantic. The man very much knocked down the population of these pretty birds.
A crowned crane is a very romantic bird. Its habitat is West and East Africa.In the marriage period, courtship may be accompanied by reciprocal dances, which include jumping, running, flapping wings, throwing grass tufts or shaking your head. The beauty of the courtship and the appearance of these birds could not pass by our "Top-10".
The red cardinal is a beautiful bird that lives primarily in the eastern states of the United States, as well as in southeastern Canada and Mexico. The color of the male is bright crimson, with a black “mask” on the face. The color of the female is dominated by grayish-brown tones, with reddish feathers on the wings, chest, and a tuft, with a less pronounced “mask” than the male.
Kingfisher. It is widespread - it moves only with the help of wings, as the legs are short and are not intended for long movement. The plumage of the kingfisher near dull; its brightness is achieved due to the refraction of light by feathers. Kingfishers love solitude, seeing them is rare. The voice is an interrupted squeak of "type-type-type".
Red macaw - the king of parrots. Despite the majestic and motley look, the macaw had a hard fate. They have long been hunted by the Indians. They used meat for food, and feathers for feathering arrows and ornaments.
Mandarin duck - a bird of the duck family. Its flight is fast and maneuverable, it flies easily, sometimes almost straight up. Unlike most ducks, a mandarin can often be seen sitting on tree branches or on coastal cliffs. Hunting mandarin is prohibited, it is listed in the Red Book of Russia as a rare species. This duck is bred in parks as a decorative bird.
Paradise tanagra lives in eastern Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, French Guiana and Guyana. It looks very specific. A light green face with a blue breast, as if a beard, and a purple chin cannot leave anyone indifferent from those who have seen this charm.
The peacock is the only bird in our “Top-10”, domesticated by humans. A characteristic feature of the male is the strong development of the upper covering feathers, mistaken for the tail. Peacocks have long been revered in the East and are also very sensitive to them in the West. In Indian mythology, when Krishna and Radha — the two faces of the god Vishnu — dance and play in the eternal joy of love, peacocks look at them.
