You won't see the traditional house birds or annoying pigeons on this list. But what you will see is a wide range of colorful feathers and bird plumage in all shapes in sizes. Everything from green wings to red beaks and more. Some are really wild and some are more subdued, but all of them are fun. This list will teach you fun facts about the species, where to find them, and show you why they deserve the title of most beautiful bird on Earth.
