One of Mother Nature's most beautiful creatures is the bird. We are lucky to inhabit a world where there are numerous different hues and types of birds. Here are a few of the world's most stunning birds:
1. Blue Bird-of-Paradise
The Blue Bird-of-Paradise is undoubtedly a gorgeous bird to see, and many bird specialists believe it to be the most beautiful bird in the entire world. Instead of a blackhead, chest, and back, the male has a vivid blue tail, a bluish ivorybill, and white-ringed eyes. The reddish-brown flank feathers and two long, flowing tail feathers round off this magnificent outfit.
2. Splendid Fairy Wren
These charming little birds in western and central Australia are a good indicator of the undergrowth of Marri, Karri, Jarrah, the Mulga Bush, and scrubland. Bird watchers must pay great attention to capture the best images of these birds since they are so quick and ephemeral. If you pay attention to the quick, high-pitched chirping of their voice when you are at a stop, you will be rewarded with a wonderful meeting with a little luck and effort.
3. Greater Bird of Paradise
Only Indonesia's dense woods contain the Greater Bird of Paradise, according to animal explorers. The elaborate feathering on this bird is just stunning.
When the Greater Bird of Paradise was first seen by Europeans, people thought it had no feet and never touched the ground.
4. Marvelous Spatuletail
After viewing a strange male spatuletail, it is simple to see how fairy tales came to be.
The little bird, which flies in the air quicker than your eyes can keep up with, has brilliant tail feathers on both sides and shimmering multi-color wings. Only discovered in a small area of Peru's Rio Utcubamba region's forested highlands.
5. Gurney’s Pitta
Indeed, the Gurney pitta is exceptionally beautiful. You will need to travel to Khao Nor Chuchi or Tenasserim, Myanmar, where the only remaining populations are, unless you anticipate ever seeing one. The palm oil business is fast destroying this little pitta habitat of the lowland rainforest, which is home to one of the most endangered species in the world.
6. Resplendent Quetzal
A bright quetzal, a bird with brilliantly coloured feathers that was once employed in the headdresses of emperors and priests, was revered by the Mayan and Aztec people. If you want to see this majestic bird in its native environment, you must travel to tropical Central America.
7. Gouldian Finch
These lovely little finches originate from northern Australia, with sporadic reports coming from the Cape York Peninsula in Western Australia and North West Queensland. The birds scurry and move around in a region that is just around 40 kilometres square when there isn't enough food or water.
8. Victoria Crowned Pigeon
The low marshes and plains of northern New Guinea are the bird's native habitat.
Even though these birds are frequently spotted at bird sanctuaries, the number of them in the wild is dwindling. The loss of habitat is the main cause of this. Sadly, Crowned Pigeons are also targeted for their flesh and feathers, but fortunately, it is no longer permitted to capture these birds for commercial purposes.
9. Mandarin Duck
The Mandarin Duck is regarded as the most beautiful duck in the entire world.
It appealed to both Chinese and Japanese culture and captured the imagination of artists with its vibrant hues. Particularly shrubs and forests, they prefer to stay close to rivers and lakes.
10. Nicobar Pigeon
South-eastern Asia and the Pacific, notably the Indian Nicobar Islands, are home to the Nicobar pigeon. Although it is uncertain how many people live on these islands, deforestation and introduced predators are causing the population of this animal to decline. The extinct dodo bird and the Nicobar pigeon share a close relationship, and both are prevalent on these islands. Due to its unique hues and brilliance, this bird is among the most beautiful in the entire globe.
