One of the things we love most about birds is their wild array of plumage colors and patterns. Where does all that color come from? In this presentation you’ll learn how pigments and microscopic structures in feathers create the kaleidoscope of beauty we find in the avian world. We’ll cover topics such as iridescence, molting and feather wear, the evolution of feather color, and the functions of feather colors.
