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.

A beautiful little bird from the Tit family, It has a steel grey beak, glossy black head with bright white cheeks, a bright yellow belly with a greenish upper back & grey wings with a white flash, Quite an aggressive bird in winter when food is in short supply & being slightly larger than other members of the Tit family its quite high in the pecking order at the bird table.
