Did you know that birds have different kinds of feathers? Feathers help keep birds warm and dry. They help birds move. Feathers help attract other birds, or help birds hide from predators.

Contour feathers help birds fly and steer while flying. These are the large feathers you see on the wings or the tails of a bird. These are also the feathers that give birds their unique colors and patterns. Some birds change feathers with the seasons so they can blend in with their surroundings. Underneath the contour feathers are ‘down’ feathers. These feathers are fluffy and soft and light grey or white. They help to keep birds warm.

We hope that you have a wonderful day! Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
