  Birds of A Feather - Hawaiian Birds
In early Hawai‘i, the red feathers from the ‘apapane and ‘i‘iwi were often plucked to be used in feather capes, kahilis, and helmets.
The birds were captured by an expert called a poe hahai manu, who mixed an adhesive paste made from the sap of the breadfruit tree, smeared it on tree limbs, then caught the stuck birds with fiber nets, nooses or bare hands.
A bird with beautiful markings on head and neck, the nene is thought to be a descendant of some ancient Canadian goose that got off track, settled in Hawai‘i’s mountains and over the years, lost most of the webbing on its feet because it no longer needed to swim.

BOAF was formed in 1975 to assist troubled airmen to sobriety, thereby saving lives and careers.
In 1976 the Federal Air Surgeon, H. Reighard, a very perceptive and realistic practitioner, believed that air safety is to be enhanced by assisting airmen to recovery rather than having them remain in the closet along with their booze.

Then there are the birds that are seen as the villains of the garden - the sparrowhawks or magpies, which Couzens sees as successful opportunists rather than ruthless killers.
He says it's important to remember that a bird such as a sparrowhawk is not actually decimating the songbird population, because if it did, it would be wiping out its food source.
"Birds numbers are declining, for all sorts of reasons - climate change is maybe one of them, also the difference in farming practices - and some of the farmland birds have come into gardens instead.

 QUILL - LoveToKnow Article on QUILL   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
, a term applied to the bare, hard, hollow tube of the feather of a bird, also to the large flight feathers or remiges, and especially to the strong feathers of the goose, swan, or crow used in the making of quill pens (see FEATHER and PEN).
The word is of obscure origin; a word with similar meaning, Kid, is found in German, and French has quille, ninepin, apparently connected with Ger.
Certain ancient stringed instruments were played with a plectrum or plucker made of the quill of a birds feather, and the word has thus been used of a plectrum made of other material and differing in shape, and also of an analogous object for striking the strings in the harpskhord, spinet or virginal.
