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).

I am very proud to announce my new book: CHAMBERLAIN'S WADERS - the definitive guide to southern Africa's Shorebirds. Following in the footsteps of Chamberlain's LBJs, the book includes more than 600 new paintings, covers the ID and biology of 80 species and is packed with extra info. Watch this video to get a sneak peek at what the book will look like when it's done (towards the end of 2016).
