Lets see your best shots of any species of bird whose feathering is three or more distinct colours/shades.whether speckled/patterned throughout individual feathers. *Beaks and feet can be any colour, its the feathering that matters for this challenge. Its not about which bird has the most vibrant colouring, it's about the skill of the photographer capturing the colours and textures no matter how subtle or vibrant they may be. If unsure of any of the rules please do ask.
