#Birdword Pied Birds

Updated: Jan 29, 2022

Pied birds are birds that have 2 or more colours on their body. These two colours are mostly black and white.


Examples of pied birds :

1) Pied Bushchat

The pied bush chat is pied in black and white colours. The male is black and white while the females are dark brown with reddish-brown underparts.

2) Pied Cuckoo

Also called as Jacobin cuckoo, this bird is also pied in black and white colours. The juveniles are born with pinkish skin which they lose within 2 days of hatching.

3) Pied Kingfisher

The pied kingfisher is also black and white. It looks kinda pixelated.

P.S - I like pies! Do you?
