Challenge #35 in the Photos depicting One Word (No rule restrictions in this series) series. Hosted by barb_s.
Challenge has finished
We love photographing the rich colors of birds. Work with a colorful bird (like a parrot) and create an interesting black and white entry. (No sepia, no color please). Entry must state the color(s) of the bird in the title or description and the color must not be a black or white bird. It must have other color to fit the challenge. I feel voting helps the challenges, so this challenge is open to those who have done some voting. See RULE 2.
