Feathers (1365 words)
Feathers often bear downy outgrowths on the underside, the aftershaft or afterfeather.
These feathers may be found among the ordinary down and contour feathers, in distinct patches by themselves or both in patches and mixed with other feathers.
The number of feathers is relatively constant within a species although they tend to have more feathers in the winter than in the summer.
The Bird's Feather (1874 words)
Feathers do not last for ever, they become worn and battered and are replaced regularly by the bird once or twice a year depending on species.
The base of the feather - where their are no side branches - is called the calamus or quill and at the base of this is the hollow entrance that was used by blood veins to carry nutrients to the growing feather when it was alive, this is called the Inferior umbilicus.
Feathers are made of keratin, a protein which is also used to make horn and hair by different animals and beaks by birds.
