Fantastic Feathers: Form and Function
When we think of birds, we think of feathers. Feathers give birds their color, keep them warm and dry, form the aerodynamic shape of the wing and can even control sound. Learn how the microscopic structure of duck feathers makes them water repellent and how the structure of owl facial feathers focuses sound towards their ears, allowing them to hunt in total darkness.
November 28 & December 12
Mass Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary and Conservation Science Department host this informal series. This event is also co-sponsored by Jack's Abby.
