Wing Stretch

Uploaded by: SunsetFL

Boynton Beach, FL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Function of Wing Feathers: o Primary Feathers propel an owl into flight. o Secondary Feathers keep an owl in flight through gliding. o On both the primary and secondary feathers, there are comb-like structures at the edge of the feather that are responsible for muffling the sound of the air going over the wing – this essentially makes an owl silent when they fly. o Also, an owl’s feathers can separate from each other on the same wing; therefore, the air flows over each of the individual feathers and their comb-like structures, which maximizes how silently an owl flies.

About SunsetFL

SunsetFL

People change and so do profiles. It was April 2004 that I started my photgraphy journey that started with posting pics of a family of owls. I didn't have a clue what depth of field, aperture, or manual mode were. But you folks and my husband encouraged me and we documented the owls until the last baby fledged and left home. Left with a huge hole in my time and a larger hole in my heart I started to photograph other birds, animals and of course sunrises and sunsets. Photography is absolutely my passion and birds in flight and nesting experiences are among my favorites.Create your own visitor map!
