I have been keen on the various bird colours! There are some so brightly coloured while others are very dull: Is there any meanng to brightness of colour?

Typically it is the male birds that are bright colored. It is the females that tend to be dull and boring. If you see a red cardinal or a blue jay-they are male. A male mallard (duck) has a green head and the females are pretty much a boring brown. I don't know of a bird that the female is prettier than the male.
