This episode—which is Number 56— is all about the colors of birds.
The diversity of color in bird plumages is one of the things we love most about these animals.
But bird plumages are impressive not only when they display vibrant colors plucked from the rainbow. Thousands of species aren’t what we’d call colorful, but they do have gorgeous, intricately patterned feathers in combinations of black, brown, and white.
Today, we’re looking at how feathers get their colors, from white to subtle earth tones to scintillating displays of wild iridescence.
