Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 67

Hello Feathered Friends Lovers,

Welcome to #SMaP Show Me A Photo Contest Round 67!

You may wonder how I come up with the new themes. Well, I rely on your suggestions and I am thankful for the ideas what to include next. But also when I review my photos, I could come across something that I find it interesting, amusing. Yesterday I was watching bunch of sparrows and because it is the mating season, male ones were doing their best to attract the females and they did a lot of noise together with some dancing and performance. And this is how I though, we haven't got a theme about male or female birds. So let's have this round MALE BIRDS.

The photo/s you will present must be of male bird. If you are not sure if your bird is male or female, you can find it out searching the net. Wikipedia, sites like eBird are just few that can help you.

And here it is the new theme:


And my examples are:

Male house sparrow

Male house sparrow has dark brown feathers on the wings and black bib.
proudly perching

and here he is showing his best side in front of the female sparrow

Male great tit


The black line on the chest and belly is thicker. This is how easily can be recognised as male.

For some birds it is very easy to distinguish male from female. For others there are small features or no sexual dimorphism. So, let me see what male birds you have photographed.

Now is your turn and let me see your photos of birds, but first read carefully the rules below⬇️


Show me your photo of a bird, following these rules:

  • The photo must be your own.
  • Post in the community Feathered Friends
  • You may add more photos, but you should state which one is your entry, otherwise the first will be taken into account.
  • Tell us something about your photo/s.
  • Your photo must follow the weekly theme.
  • Please put the link of your entry in the comment section of the contest post here.
  • Put in the title of your post that this is an entry for the contest. (Optional)
  • Use #smap as a tag.

Last, but not least - have fun!

If you create quality post with more images and interesting story about them, making extra effort can give you bigger upvotes and attract curators. Keep that in mind.
