Dear Readers, firstly very well done to everyone who took part this week: Claire, Joanna and Fran and Bobby Freelove all got a perfect 12/12 for their feather identification so a big round of applause is coming your way from East Finchley. I shall have to dream up something devilish for tomorrow, you’re all getting much too good.
And secondly, I hope that you enjoyed looking at these feathers as much as I did – they are miracles of adaptation and evolution, and differ so much from species to species, according to the bird’s requirements. They all come from the Featherbase website – links to the individual photos are at the bottom of the post. It is a most extraordinary resource, and I’m very glad to have found it!
