Animal Colours : Birds, The same but different ! [ eligibility and rules below, dont make me DQ you for the sake of a few moments to read the rules ]

Challenge #47 in the The Company Of Animals series. Hosted by Patchandcrew.
Challenge has finished
Lets see your best shots of any species of birds of which at least two are completely different colourings to each other. Most commonly if of the same species would mean male and female as one is often differently coloured to the other, or young and adult of which the young has not yet developed adult colouring/plumage, however, same species is not mandatory for this challenge, its different colouring between at least two birds within shot that matters. Also same pattern type but of different colouring is absolutely fine. If there are three or more in the photo of the same species as long as one is a different colouring to however any others in shot thats absolutely fine. If unsure of any of the rules please do ask.
