Any guesses? I found out...the hard way. Before all the counting began though, I made a short "tutorial" video that points out the main feather tracts of a bird, and their respective functions. If you have a few minutes to spare, I am sure you'll find this illuminating. And what a stunning little bird the Black-throated Canary is (or at least, was, before I yanked its feathers out).
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC? Contents of blog posts are also organised by topic and family/species in the Birds page. Ditto for other Biodiversity.
