Taiwan Blue Magpie

This bird probably has the coolest wings you will ever see on a bird. Just look how they fan out and almost make them look like some sort of fancy fan hovering instead of regular wings on a bird in flight. Surprisingly, this beautiful creature is part of the crow family. If you ever take a trip to Taiwan, be sure to keep an eye out for these magnificent birds.

Violet-crowned Woodnymph

This beauty really caught our eye because of how its feathers almost look like shiny sequins instead of plumage. These guys are tiny hummingbirds that only grow to about four inches tall. They can be found in the lowlands and foothills of Central and South America. The males of this species take on this purple color where the females are mostly green.

Greater Blue-Eared Glossy Starling

This African bird is so glossy that you need to wear sunglasses or suffer the glare. Thespruce.com says that these gorgeous birds can come in many colors like blue, teal, purple, green, black, brown, gray, iridescent, and yellow. Depending on the light and angle that you view these starlings, they can appear to be a variety of colors all at once. They are truly a sight to see.

Lilac-Breasted Roller

This African beauty can be found in sub-Saharan Africa and the southern Arabian Peninsula. They often travel alone or in pairs and can be found perched on the highest treetops. They are crow-sized birds that are unmistakable because of their stunning coloring.
