Mystery Bird of September

I just love these colors. The photographer, William Dalton, did a superb job in matching the subtle colors of the flower and background to the bird. Now if we just knew the name of this beautiful bird we be completely happy! OK, somebody, tell us who he is…

There are so many excellent photos of UNIDENTIFIED beautiful birds available on the Internet. This is the next in a series of Monthly Mystery Birds from around the world. This series seeks to tap the knowledge of people who recognize these beauties, and to spread that knowledge to the rest of us. There’s something satisfying about knowing the names of birds. They become more familiar to us and seem more like friends when we know what to call them. Sort of like, “Oh, there’s Brad Pitt”, rather than, “Oh, there’s some guy on the street.”

After some expert supplies the name of our Mystery Bird, we’ll add some details about just who that bird is and where it’s from.

If you recognize this bird, please respond in the Comments Section below, and help to enlighten our readers.

If you have any views on this, or experiences of your own you’d like to share, We’d love to hear from you – please leave a comment below.

    I must admit that I have never seen such a pretty bird before and the photographer has for sure done a great job. The colors of the flower and bird are so subtly matched. It is really a treat to the eyes. Great photo and thanks a lot for sharing!

      Thank you very much for the comment. Frankly, though, I’m disappointed in the lack of responses to my Mystery Bird posts. I’ve been hoping that bird experts would be identifying them for us so I could provide detailed information about these beauties for the rest of our readers.
