    What is the practical purpose of male species of birds being so brightly colored, other than attracting mates? Surely makes them more noticeable to predators.

    It does. You're looking at on of the classic examples of sexual selection and natural selection working in opposition with one another. Natural selection tends to be the evolution of survival-based traits. Sexual selection, oddly, is often in opposition with natural selection. Generally, there are reproductive implications related to the bright colors - such as increased fertility or better health in the brighter males. But mostly evolution is just an imperfect system.
