Transcript Page 4, I picked it up, and ran my thumb and finger the length of it, (with the grain) and it was smooth. Pulling thumb and finger back, I ruffled it into sections except for the shaft. I smoothed it out by drawing it between my fingers and the web and barbs positioned themselves into perfect alignment. This is what the birds do with their bill, when their feathers need repair. Considering a bird ( a robin for example) has about 3,000 feathers they have a big job keeping all in order, I recalled as I studied the feather, that it was a symbol, or a sign of uniqueness of over 8,600 species of birds. The feather sets them apart from all other life forms. It is not flight that caused the division, because some birds cannot fly, even though winged and feathered. The feather serves the bird well. It is his insulation against heat and cold. Because it is one of the strongest and lightest material formed by any creature, the feather is the essential element in birds ability to fly. Back in the Mesozoic era, feathers of birds evolved from reptilian scales. Because of this and the development of its varied colors, the feather has given us our beautiful avian friends, CIEARING HOUSE, JULY, 1970 Grebe, Pied-billed: (1 with 3 immature + 3 more adults)17, Cove, AKM.
