Feathers!  

All birds have feathers and birds are the only animals that do!

Feathers do many jobs for birds.  Soft down keeps them warm, wing feathers allow flight and tail feathers are used for steering.

The color of the feathers can be used to hide the bird or to help the bird find a boyfriend or a girlfriend!

 

Scientific information:  Birds are a scientific "class".  The scientific name for the class is Aves.
