Without a doubt, red! Ask your officemates, friends, boss, or any other human around you, and anyone with clear vision and no color blindness will answer by saying that the color of this bird is red.
Many color specialists who take pride in their knowledge of hues and colors might indulge in the tussle of whether the bird is jam red, crimson red, sangria red, mahogany red, or currant red, however, all of them would agree upon the fact that the bird at least holds the hue of red, irrespective of the shade.

The Fun Part
Now, without questions, simply stare at the teeny-tiny black dot on the bird for around 10 seconds.

It turns blue automatically. If this isn't what you call magic, we don't know what's magic for you!
Working Of An Optical Illusion
Our brain is smart but it is blind too. Our eyes, as our sensory organs responsible for vision, allow us to see and inform our brains about the things surrounding us. Sometimes, miscommunication occurs between our brains and eyes. Sometimes, our brain is unable to understand what the eyes are trying to say.
The brain and the eyes converse is not complicated language. The messages are transferred clearly; most of the time, our brain interprets exactly what our eyes want to convey.
For instance, if there is an apple kept on the table near me, by just looking at the apple, my brain would tell me if the apple is ripe or not, how far the apple is kept from me, and how big or small the apple is. By just looking at the object with the help of our eyes, we become capable of answering such complicated questions, thanks to our minds.
However, while the brain is efficient at making pitch-perfect guesses, it sometimes commits some errors. These errors are the base of optical illusions.
An optical illusion occurs when the interpretation of the communication between the eyes and the brain gets mixed up.
While scientists have been curious to know the exact reason behind optical illusions, the broad answer to the question is that the miscommunication between our eyes and our brain leads the latter to make a wrong judgment.
