Feathers Friday Landing on Explorit's Social Media

An owl comes in for a silent landing.

Special to the Enterprise

 

Be sure to follow Explorit Science Center on social media to take part in the latest aspect of our Community Science Project—#feathersfriday! Each Friday we feature videos, photos, facts and more about feathers, their functions and uses on Facebook and Twitter as part of our Feathers in Your World Community Science Project.

 

Last week we explored how the structure of owls’ wing feathers allows them to come in for a silent landing to sneak up on their prey. Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/explorit.fb/ or follow us on Twitter @ExploritScience to check out this week’s #feathersfriday!

 

And keep your eyes on our website for more information about other events that are part of our Feathers in Your World Community Science project, such as a free public lecture by Thor Hanson, author of Feathers: Evolution of a Natural Miracle. Hanson will speak Wednesday, September 7 at DMG Mori’s auditorium at 7:00 p.m.

 

Plus, don’t forget to save the date for Explorit’s Major Fall Fundraiser with Andrea Wulf, author of The Invention of Nature: How Alexander von Humboldt Revolutionized Our World at the Veterans Memorial Theater on Friday, October 28. Ticketing information to follow.
