Birds of a feather! Feathers are pretty phenomenal things. They’re colorful. They’re light. They’re soft. They help birds fly. Focus on feathers and their features in this fascinating edition of ASK Magazine.
The magnificent colors are among the first things we think of when we start to study feathers. Open the paint box of bird feather colors, discover what we can learn from the different coloring, and see how even dinosaurs might been decked out in some colorful plumage (aka: feathers!). You’ll also explore various use for feathers (Hats! Pens!) and how some birds have noisy wings that sing, and others have silent wings allowing them to be stealthy for a sneaky attack.
