Description
Feathers are an essential aspect of birds' lives (not only enabling them to fly but also protecting them and signaling sex, age, and breeding status), and when they wear out they are replaced by molting. Though birds have evolved many ways of balancing when and where to molt with other aspects of their life cycles, their molting patterns are based on only four underlying strategies: simple basic, complex basic, simple alternate, and complex alternate molt. Steve Howell, long affiliated with the Point Reyes Bird Observatory and the author of many books and papers on birds, clearly explains the molting strategies of each family of birds, using beautiful photographs and superimposed labels to illustrate and simplify this significant means of bird identification and study.
