  • Functions of Feathers Down Feathers (4 characteristics) Trap warm air near body Under contour feathers of adults Cover bodies of some young birds Fluffy Down Feathers (4 characteristics) Trap warm air near body Under contour feathers of adults Cover bodies of some young birds Fluffy Contour Feathers (4 characteristics) Give birds streamlined shape Barbs branch off main body Colors attract males Camouflage protects from predators

  • Flying Paper Birds Types of Flight Gliding-In gliding flight, a bird's wings deflect air downward, causing a lift force that holds the bird up in the air. When a bird is gliding, it doesn't have to do any work Soaring-Soaring flight is a special kind of glide, in which the bird flies in a rising air current. Because the air is rising, the bird can maintain its height relative to the ground. (Vultures and Hawks) Flapping-The wings flap with an up-and-down motion. When the wings move up and down, they are also moving forward through the air along with the rest of the bird.
