Common blackbird is charcoal black and has an orange-yellow beak. The female, on the other hand, is brown, with light streaks on her chest and a dark beak. Common blackbirds are omnivorous and eat both worms and berries.
Both male and female American goldfinches have a colorful carotenoid based orange bill during the breeding season. As it turns out, bill color functions as a signal of status between females of a population.
Male and female cardinals also have different colors in their beaks as males have red beaks and females have orange beaks. The red coloration that males develop in their plumage is a result of carotenoids in their feather structure, and they ingest those carotenoids in their diet.
Cardinals are dichromatic. What is this? The male and female cardinals are the same size (7.5 – 8.5” long) and weight (1.4 – 1.8 oz). Both genders have orange beaks, dark brown eyes, and dark flesh-colored legs and feet.

More specifically, a first winter Heermann’s gull. Adult Heermann’s are distinguishable by their orange beak, sooty gray body and white feathering across their head and neck. “This species of gull is unlike any other gull species in North America,” Wimpfheimer said.
Ravens Don’t Have Yellow Beaks Birds like the Alpine chough (yellow beak) and the red-billed chough (red beak) are not really “ravens and crows”, but part of the wider crow family.
They have shown how male birds with very red or orange beaks are the ones that take in very high levels of nutrients, carotenoids, which can boost the immune system.
American Oystercatchers look black-and-white from a distance, with a bright orange-red bill. At closer range, the back and wings are brown, with a black head and breast, white underparts, yellow eye, and red eyering.
Finch Native American Symbolism
In Native American traditions, finches are often associated with celebration and joy. They were regarded as Omens of good things to come.
Adult males are rosy red around the face and upper breast, with streaky brown back, belly and tail. In flight, the red rump is conspicuous. Adult females aren’t red; they are plain grayish-brown with thick, blurry streaks and an indistinctly marked face.
Pyrrhuloxia birds look like cardinals; in fact, they are sometimes called the desert cardinal. This species an be found in the Southwest and has the same impressive crest as the northern cardinal. The coloring is a bit different, though: Male pyrrhuloxias are mostly gray with red accents.
The most common interpretation of a cardinal is a message from a departed loved one. Whenever you see one, it signifies that they are visiting you. They generally appear when you need or miss them the most. They also come through moments of joy and sorrow to let you know they will always be there for you.
Tied with the blood of Christ, the cardinal represents the eternal life-giving nature of Jesus and His ministry. Seeing a female cardinal means that you will receive good news or something positive will happen for you in the future.
Male and Female Cardinals are easily distinguishable from each other. The immediate difference is the red coat and crest of the male with the brown-fawn of the female. Their faces are similar since they have the same color beaks, with a black circle of feathers covering their eyes.

Measurements. Golden-crowned Kinglets are pale olive above and gray below, with a black-and-white striped face and bright yellow-orange crown patch.
People who say “seagull,” we assure each other, are wrong. There’s no such thing as a seagull—the correct term is simply “gull," because gulls don’t live exclusively near the sea. This is a hill many birders have chosen to die on.
