Convergence in ornaments: many bird species feature males with bright, colorful feather patterning, ideal for attracting possible female mates. Below are three different species whose feathers all feature different-- but all quite vibrant-- colors: red, purple-green, and yellow. They are the Northern Cardinal, the Violet-Green Swallow, and the Arkansas/Green-Backed Goldfinch, respectively.
