How many birds can you see in this picture below? Don’t be fooled by the first impression, many people first see only 5 and think it’s the final number. Actually, there are few more :)

How Many Birds Are There?

    I see seven obvious ones. But if there’s more in the back ground they’re not jumping out at me.

  2. anonymous says:

    Where “a few” = 2. And hopefully everyone ignores the filename…

  3. NiteSpeed says:

    Let’s stick with seven.

  4. michael says:

  32. Ash says:

    Seven..thats in the pic..dont know if ppl who c more r looking out of their windows !!!

  33. OwenKL says:

    Okay, I see the seven just fine. The two between the bird’s wings are identical in shape to the 5 plainly visible ones (a la Escher’s “Black & White”). But are there any others in other shapes? I almost see heads only of a chickadee and a hawk, and a really cartoony heron, but I’m really unsure of them. Where can we find a definitive solution?

  34. sanghoku says:

    i count 14…
    7 obvious ones, 5 on the arc above the door, one in the tree in the left corner, the bush sticking up could be interpreted as part of an ostrich (is that how your write it?)

  35. Leendert says:

    7 it must be. Don’t see more.

  36. Izzy says:

    I believe that its seven!!!

  37. p says:

    You people are trying too hard. There’s only supposed to be 7. It’s not lame.

  73. GhetoRayden says:

    Well, i put a series of mirrors angled atomically perfect infront of my laptop giving me a most endless cascading effect needless to say my answer is INFINITE!

  74. Jez says:

    there are only 7

  75. Ruinate says:

    There are 8, the large eagle has a smaller bird on its back, it’s eye is the large eagle’s eyebrow. That’s why it appears that the large eagle has 4 wings.

  76. Frank says:

    7 ofcourse. If you hold your mouse over the picture is says: 7brd optical illusion .

  83. kramyer Lee says:

    this optical illusion is quite good. yeah it’s visible to see,there is a 5 birds in this picture.Then, while you paying attention to find the other birds,and your vision was be played by this optical illusion. You don’t notice the other birds had already flown. hahahah ^_^

  84. Akire says:

    There is a bird shape in the bird-shaped plant on the left. It’s nesr the top. Haha Hoped I helped.

  85. Ika Puspa F. W. says:

    To people who said this picture has 7 bird because it was titled 7brd, I must say that I’ve seen 9 birds. 7 main birds (including the light-shadowed ones), an ostrich-like tree, and a somehow look like a swan head and neck at top of the door.

    There’s maybe more, though…
