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:

MALE BIRDS

And my examples are:

Male house sparrow

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

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⬇️

Rules

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.

Prizes

Five winners and each winner will receive 2 Hive or 2 HBD (it depends on the price of Hive) and 200 Ecency POINTS.

I would like to thank our judge @oks2crypto, who is doing such a great job and help choosing among all entries the winners.

Huge thank you Feathered Friends Community and @melinda010100 for sponsoring the contest. I should not miss to mention our most talented artist @barbara-orenya for her constant and creative support.

For those who are not familiar with Ecency POINTS - the ecency.com and its mobile version reward the users with POINTS when post, comment and using Ecency apps. The accumulated points can be used to boost or promote your posts or to be gifted to other users.

Now Feathered Friends Community begins receiving POINTS when you post in the community, thanks to the initiative created by Ecency. This way the community is earning POINTS and gladly will reward the winners with them.

Whoever is directly controlling the V2K told me to kill myself.
They told me if I killed myself now it would save the lives of countless others.
Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.


They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.

Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?

A not so easy theme, that will be interesting in many aspects ! 😃
The only birds in my surroundings that I know which one is the male or female are the blackbirds, they are easy to make the distinction...and let's say also the mallards 😁 😉

Good challenge week to everyone !

I think it will be interesting week, also my intention is to make it more educational. 😉
Even if you know one species it is OK. I personally have fun recognizing birds and even more fun finding out if they are male or female. Hope it will not be so hard and let's see what the contestants will present.

Have a wonderful week, Barbara 💕

@nelinoeva Male birds are often flamboyant compared to the females - contrary to humans where ladies are always more pretty and colorful 😊

Therefore, this is an interesting subject.

Here is my entry for #SMAP 7

I have not been winning contests lately. Hope the judges like this entry 😀😀

Hi Neli! You got some terrific photos of male birds! My favorite is the first one! I made a post and I know it's "down to the wire" so I hope I got it in before the deadline. 🤔
