The 20 Most Brilliantly Colored Birds in the World<br/>    Posted by: "OklaMeltingPot@aol.com" OklaMeltingPot@aol.com redoak382003<br/>    Date: Fri Nov 5, 2010 11:02 am ((PDT))<br/><br/><br/><br/>In a message dated 11/1/2010 11:30:12 AM Central Daylight Time,  <br/>lorettaplg@aol.com writes:<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>    <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>WOW!  God's  paint-pot!   <br/><br/>     <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  20 Most Brilliantly Colored Birds in the World  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Birds  are the only animals with feathers. All have  feathers and most <br/>birds can fly. It is the  possession of feathers, not the ability to fly,  that <br/>distinguishes birds from other animals.  There  are about 10,000 species of <br/>birds  from all over the world. Here are 20 of the  world's most colorful <br/>birds.  <br/><br/>1.  Golden Pheasant  (Chrysolophus pictus)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  golden pheasant of Asia is a brilliantly colored  game bird. It is <br/>native to forests in  mountainous areas of western China but feral  populations <br/>have been established in the United  Kingdom and elsewhere. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>2.   Birds of Paradise  (Paradisaeidae)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  greater bird of paradise found in New Guinea has  elongated flank <br/>feathers that form ornamental  plumes.  Bird of Paradise is a tropical  bird <br/>known for the brilliant plumage of the  male. They live mostly in New Guinea <br/>and  neighboring islands. The brilliantly colored  feathers of the male were <br/>once widely sought as  decorations for women's hat.  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>3.   Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus  hyacinthinus)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Hyacinth  Macaws are native to central and eastern South  America . It is <br/>the largest macaw and the  largest flying parrot species in the world,  <br/>though the flightless Kakapo of New Zealand can  outweigh it at up to 3.5kg. In <br/>terms of length  it is larger than any other species of parrot.  Their <br/>popularity as pets has taken a heavy toll  on their population in the wild. Birds <br/>in  captivity fetch a price of around $9,000-$12,000  US.  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>4.   Flamingo (Phoenicopteridae)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Flamingos  are found in both the Western Hemisphere and  Eastern Hemisphere <br/>. Flamingos frequently stand  on one leg. The reason for this behavior is <br/>not  fully known. Flamingo tongues were considered a  delicacy in Ancient <br/>Rome. Also, Andean miners  have killed flamingos for their fat, believed to  be <br/>a cure for tuberculosis <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>5.   Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  scarlet tanager is a medium-sized American  songbird. Adult males are <br/>bright red with black  wings and tail; females are yellowish on the  <br/>underpants and olive on top, with olive-brown  wings and tail. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>6.   Northern Oriole (Icterus galbula)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Northern  oriole is formerly known as Baltimore oriole in  the east and <br/>Bullock's oriole in the west. This  is a small icterid blackbird which is 18 cm <br/>long  and weighs 34 g. It is one of the brightest  local birds and has a <br/>voice to match its  distinctive plumage.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>7.   Mountain Bluebird (Sialia  currucoides)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  bluebirds are medium-sized, mostly insectivorous  or omnivorous birds <br/>in the genus Sialia of the  thrush family Turdidae. These are attractive  <br/>birds with blue, or blue and red, plumage.  Female birds are less brightly <br/>colored than  males. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>8.   Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis  cardinalis)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  northern cardinal is also known as the Redbird  and the Virginia <br/>nightingale. The Northern  Cardinal is a mid-sized songbird with a body  length <br/>of 21-23 cm (8.3 to 9 inches). It has a  distinctive crest on the head and a <br/>mask on the  face which is black in the male and gray in the  female. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>9.   American Goldfinch (Carduelis  tristis)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  American goldfinch is also known as the Eastern  Goldfinch and Wild <br/>Canary. The male displays  brightly colored plumage during the breeding  <br/>season to attract a mate. The courtship rituals  of the American Goldfinch <br/>include aerial  maneuvers and singing by males. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>10.   Wood Duck (Aix sponsa)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  Wood Duck or Carolina Duck is a medium-sized  perching duck. A typical <br/>adult is about 19  inches in length with an average wingspan of 29  inches. <br/>The adult male has distinctive  multi-colored iridescent plumage and red <br/>eyes.  The female, less colorful, has a white eye-ring  and a whitish throat. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>11.   Kingfisher (Halcyonidae)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>There  are about 90 species of kingfisher. All have  large heads, long, <br/>sharp, pointed bills, short  legs, and stubby tails. They are found  throughout <br/>the world. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>12.   Green Wing Macaw Parrot (Ara chloroptera)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  superficially similar Scarlet Macaw has no eye  lines and a yellow bar <br/>on each wing. Some macaw  owners and experts call the Green-winged Macaw  <br/>the "gentle giant", as it is larger in size than  the Scarlet Macaw and <br/>Blue-and-yellow Macaw, but  have a more docile, sweet nature which often  makes <br/>it a more desirable pet or companion  parrot.  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>13.   Troupial (Icterus icterus)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Troupial  or trupial is the national bird of Venezuela.  The Troupial is <br/>fairly large in size, with a  long tail and a bulky bill. It has a black head  <br/>and upper breast. Troupials are obligate nest  pirates, meaning they make <br/>no nest of their own,  and are thus required to steal or occupy a  vacant <br/>nest in order to survive. Troupials are  capable of violent attacks against <br/>native  nesters, and once they possess these territories  they defend them <br/>fiercely against intruders.  They may even ingest the eggs or young  hatchlings <br/>of a newly acquired nest.  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>14.   Blue Throated Bee-Eater (Merops viridis)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  bee-eaters are a group of near passerine birds  in the family <br/>Meropidae. They are characterized  by richly colored plumage, slender bodies and  <br/>usually elongated central tail feathers. It is a  species of bird in the <br/>Meropidae family. It is  found in Hong Kong , Taiwan , China and  countries in <br/>Southeast Asia. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>15.   Painted Bunting (Passerina ciris)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  male Painted Bunting is often described as the  most beautiful bird in <br/>North America . Its  beautiful colors, dark blue head, green back,  red <br/>rump and underparts, make it easy to  identify. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>16.   Keel-billed Toucans (Ramphastos  sulfuratus)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>This  bird is the national bird of Belize . Toucans  belong to family <br/>Ramphastidae. They are brightly  marked and have large, colorful bills.It is also <br/>known as Sulfur-breasted Toucan, Rainbow-billed  Toucan, and colloquially <br/>"the bill bird" (though  this might refer to any toucan). It is a  colorful <br/>South American bird with a large bill.  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>17.   Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus  haematodus)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  Rainbow Lorikeet is very colorful as its name  suggests. Almost every <br/>color of the rainbow is  found on the feathers of the rainbow lorikeet.  <br/>Captive lorikeets have a long Lifespan, often in  excess of 20 years. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>18.   Scarlet Macaw (Ara Macao)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>The  Scarlet Macaw is a large, colorful parrot. It is  native to humid <br/>evergreen forests in the  American tropics, from extreme eastern Mexico  locally <br/>to Amazonian Peru and Brazil. It's the  national bird of Honduras. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>19.   Stork-billed Kingfisher (Pelargopsis  capensis)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>This  is a stork-billed kingfisher from South India.  Stork-billed <br/>kingfisher is a tree kingfisher  which is widely but sparsely distributed in  <br/>tropical south Asia from India and Sri Lanka to  Indonesia. <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>20.   Peafowl or Peacock (Pavo)<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Peafowl,  a large bird of the pheasant family, is among  the most colorful <br/>of birds. Asian peacocks have  long been domesticated. The males are noted <br/>for  their display of brilliant plumage. To attract  attention, during <br/>courtship and at other times,  the male lifts the train and spreads it out in a  <br/>fan that arches over the bird's back and touches  the ground on either side.  <br/>The Peacock is  the national bird of India.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>**********************<br/>May the stars carry your sadness  away,<br/>May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,<br/>May hope forever wipe  away your tears,<br/>And, above all, may silence make you strong.<br/><br/>Chief  Dan George<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Messages in this topic (1)<br/>________________________________________________________________________<br/>________________________________________________________________________<br/>4.

(OSDFEE) is looking for good <br/>men and women  who want to help enrich the lives of students who attend the <br/>Oklahoma  School for the Deaf.<br/><br/>Over 10 years ago, a few OSD staff members, some deaf  adults, and other <br/>professionals in deaf education from around the state  started working on <br/>setting up a foundation. <br/>After a few false starts, several postponements, changes  in board <br/>     <br/>Since early in 2000,<br/>OSDFEE  has awarded:   <br/>Early  Childhood    (3)<br/>ECDP Tee  Shirt<br/>Amtrak Train  Experience<br/>Ride the Boats at  Bricktown <br/>$590.00   <br/>Elementary   (15)<br/>Elementary Learning  Lab<br/>Accelerated Reading Box Rewards  <br/>Accelerated Reading  Rewards<br/>Enhancing Education with Field Trips<br/>Train Ride<br/>Honor Roll  Rewards<br/>Reward Trip for Honor  Roll<br/>Visit Channel 9 Weather Studio<br/>Way to Go!<br/>Hands On Science Trip to  Arbuckle<br/>Wilderness<br/>Honor Roll  Reward<br/>How’d They Do  That?<br/>Lower Elementary to OKC  Zoo<br/>First Grade  Fishies<br/>OSD Homerun  Kids $2,771.26<br/>members, and going through all the redtape and  paperwork, the Oklahoma <br/>Foundation for Deaf Children and Youth, Inc. was  established. The first board <br/>of directors included people from across  the state and the mission was <br/>statewide. <br/>As time passed, even though their hearts were with the  foundation, <br/>it seemed hard for people who lived  far <br/>away to attend the meetings. The board changed by  having more local people <br/>involved.  <br/>Early in 2000, the first teacher grants were awarded.  the first <br/>postsecondary scholarships were awarded in the fall of 2001.   <br/>During the September 2001 board meeting, a motion was  made and unanimously <br/>carried by the current Board of Trustees to focus  only on students and <br/>programs at the Oklahoma School for the Deaf. (As  you can see, the new name <br/>reflects that decision.) <br/>Since early 2000, OSDFEE has awarded: <br/>27  Classroom grants have been awarded to teachers in all departments as  <br/>follows:     <br/>Special  Needs   (5)<br/>A Trip  Back in Time<br/>The Work  Room<br/>WOW—Water on  Wheels<br/>V-Cam Now Digital Video  Camera<br/>Amtrak  Experience <br/>$2,149.70   <br/>High  School    (10)<br/>High  School Video Library<br/>Billy Seago in  the Classroom<br/>Embroidery  Unlimited<br/>Classroom Video/Book  Library<br/>High-Interest Reading<br/>Accelerated  Reading  Store<br/>No Teacher Left  Behind<br/>Jousting  Outing<br/>Football/Volleyball  Trips<br/>5 Star Dining  Experience <br/>$6,211.26  Classroom Grants Total $11,722.22  Deaf  Academic Camp    (4  <br/>years)<br/>$6,800.00  ArtSign Trip (Spring ’03)     <br/>$2,300.00  GRAND  TOTAL GRANTS $20,822.22   <br/>Scholarships:<br/>9 students, 20 semesters  @<br/>$250.00/semester  $5,000.00 <br/>(One of the high school grants, "Billy Seago  <br/>in the Classroom," was really school-wide. Mr.Seago  worked with all <br/>different ages in each department of OSD, as well as  teaching an all-day <br/>interpreter workshop at ECU in Ada and putting on an  evening performance for the <br/>local Deaf community. <br/>OSDFEE wants to continue these gifts to enrich the  educational program <br/>with extra activities that OSD's budget doesn't  provide. <br/>"The Foundation will serve as a partner in Deaf  education by providing <br/>grants to support programs and teaching projects  for which funds are not <br/>available from federal, state or local sources  and by offering scholarships for <br/>OSD graduates' post-secondary  education." <br/>Foundation trustees volunteer their time and expertise.  EVERY CENT given <br/>goes to work for the students at OSD. No money is used  for office rent, <br/>paying gas for trustees to travel to the meetings,  buying lunch for the <br/>trustees, etc. <br/>OSDFEE is a 5013C organization, so all donations are tax  exempt! <br/>How can you help? It's  simple!     <br/>(http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/onetime.pdf)   <br/>(http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/monthly.pdf)   _One-time  donation.<br/>_ (http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/onetime.pdf) _This can be done in <br/>your own  name or in honor or memory of another  person._ <br/>(http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/onetime.pdf)   <br/>_Check it Out._ (http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/monthly.pdf)  <br/>(http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/monthly.pdf) _Sign up to have <br/>$10.00 or more deducted from your bank  account every month. $10.00 a month would <br/>be a yearly donation of  $120.00.  $10.00 a month doesn't hurt most family <br/>budgets.  Just think--if 50 people gave $10.00 a month for a year, that  <br/>would be $6,000.00 a year! The number of teacher grants and  scholarships could <br/>be  increased!_ (http://www.osd.k12.ok.us/Publications/monthly.pdf)  <br/>(http://www.statcounter.com/)  <br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>Messages in this topic (1)<br/>________________________________________________________________________<br/>________________________________________________________________________<br/>19.
