Feather Fact #7

The number of feathers a bird has depends on its size. Songbirds have between 2000-4000 feathers while Hummingbirds have the fewest. Some patient person determined that a Ruby-throated Hummingbird had 940 of them. However, they weren’t as patient as whoever counted the feathers of the Tundra Swan! If you missed it, read Feather Fact #1 to find out how many that was.

BPQ’s Feather Fest takes place on September 23rd at Parc des Rapides in Lasalle.

Please download the Feather Fest flyer for details.

Check out the Video by Jean-Marc Lacoste of the beautiful birds and other wildlife seen at Parc des Rapides on the day of its reopening last week.
