A cryptic is coloration that has the aim of camouflaging a bird. It also applies to a formation that has the same aim. Cryptic colouration and patterning of adult birds, eggs and young is well seen in many ground-nesting species.

The term opposite in meaning to cryptic is phaneric, which essentially means 'advertising'.
