I’ve always enjoyed seeing birds in the yard. Most of the birds I see in my area are generally small and monochromatic. I grew up learning about birds from my grandmother and she gave me a bird book when I was still a small child. The birds in this book astounded me. I’d never seen such colors and plumage on anything like them before. Thanks to the Internet, I’ve been able to explore the bird world even further. Here are what I believe to be the 10 most beautiful birds from around the world.

I think this bird is greatly overlooked, except by avid bird watchers. The beauty of this bird isn’t immediately visible, due to its mostly gray plumage. The Bohemian Waxwing has rose-colored feathers on its face that seem to gradually blend into the rest of its gray body. The tip of the mostly black tail appears to be dipped in vibrant yellow. The tuft at the top the Bohemian Waxwing’s head makes it even slightly comical, as well as beautiful.
