Hidden Pictures

Trying to photograph smallish birds in trees leads mostly to photographs that will never win awards or even be considered to be examples of bird photography. Making the best of a bad situation, I offer up to bored souls out there these three photos as "Hidden Pictures" such as you may have enjoyed in your youth. Find the bird in each scene - click on the photo for a larger view if you want the easier version (or clearer confirmation of your guesses). I believe I have put them in order of difficulty. Good luck!

Love the idea and have always loved the hidden pictures as a kid (and love trying to find them before my kids too).

I'll give you a hint on #3: the bird is upright with its tummy facing the camera, but partially obscured by a branch.

Top: bird with pretty feathers
Middle: bird with light tail
Bottom: no bird. If you saw one it was a mirage, a chimera, an hallucination.

Can't decide if this is is fun or torture.
