Bird of the Week Challenge: 16th May - Rainbow Challenge

Hi everyone,

Absolutely amazing photos again, gosh I really do love those yellow birds :) Since we're on a bit of a colour theme, let's do one that looks like we haven't had in a while. The Rainbow Challenge! Lets go through the rainbow and post photos of birds (or parts of birds) that fit. Follow the ROYGBIV - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet in order (think those last 2 will be challenging...)

Guidelines:

  • You can post either a shot of a whole bird that has features that colour, or, even better, crop in on a part of the bird (leg, eye etc) that is that colour.
  • Keep with the order of the rainbow - ROYGBIV
  • A species can only be posted once (so if a rainbow lorikeet is used for green, it can't be used again for blue).
  • Each person can post multiple times but allow 2 other members to post before posting again.
  • Once we get through all the colours, go back to the beginning. Lets see how many times we can cycle through the rainbow.
  • State the name of the bird and the colour you are up to in the post.

Cheers,

Monica

Great to see you back posting agan Annie.

I had to google Indigo. Apparently it's a dark blue colour.

Pretty sure there are enough different shades of blue in a Forest Kingfisher to cover it.

Thanks Reflex c: good to be back, now I just need to get back into getting some (new) bird shots happening.  So, I think we're back to RED....Red beak, and red on the tail that you can only just see on this Beautiful Firetail.

I can't believe I ended up with Indigo again. I'm not even sure I know what Indigo looks like.

Maybe a Restless Flycatcher has some Indigo on it?

From google it looks like indigo is a purpley blue .

Violet is also a bit tricky.

There is some violet on the sheen of this Straw-necked Ibis.
