Junior Editor Quiz on- BIRD COLORS MRS, -BIRD -OF- PARAOISH (PLAlM ANY EGGS OR YOUNG BIRDS ABOUND V/e QUESTION; Why are male birds so brightly colored and the females so dull? ANSWER: To most birds, his home nest is extremely important—at least during that period when it contains eggs or young birds. The eggs are very fragile and the young birds make easy prey for various prowling animals. During the nesting period, therefore, the eggs and young must be concealed as much as possible. This is why the females of most bird pairs are so drab in color. As the mother is brooding over her eggs (2), her colors match those of the nest, which becomes almost invisible. With the male, the situation is different. His bright aggressive colors show other birds who is boss around that neck of the woods — that goes for his singing, too. Also, during the time he was courting (top), his brilliant colors drew him to the attention of the female bird. Our picture shows the remarkable plumage of one of the famous Birds of Paradise. Sometimes, the variations in nature have led to male birds which are dull colored, too. One such species builds a little "bower" on the ground of many upright twigs. Inside, he piles little mounds of shiny, colorful pebbles. Then he dances around in front of it. proud of his work as a craftsman and hoping his lady will notice it.
