Challenge has finished
Next in the animal colours set, lets see your best shots of any species of bird whose feathers are predominantly brown [ other colours/markings are fine but there must be clearly more brown than other colours *within shot*, , if the balance is too far from brown predominant I will DQ ;) ]. If unsure please ask ;)
