Bird feathers are precision instruments. Textures, locations, shapes, maintenance... no detail is left to chance, because feathers must allow a bird to fly, but also, as appropriate, protect it from the weather, predators, attract mates, and many other things. This guide will help the reader to understand the nature and functions of feathers and determine which species feather found on the ground belong to. From collection, identification, through to cleaning, conservation and classification, the set of skills and knowledge needed to unlock the secrets of feathers are explained in detail, with plenty of images.
