BIRDS’ SENSES Sight For most birds, sight is their best sense. They can see much better than humans, and they can see in color, unlike many mammals. Rectrix Filoplume Remex Bristle Down A bird’s stiffest feathers are the remex feathers of the wing and the retrix feathers of the tail. The outside of a bird’s body is covered with contour feathers that give the body shape and waterproof the bird. Underneath the contour feathers are the semiplume and down feathers that help keep the bird warm. Filoplumes lie alongside the contour feathers and help the bird tell if its feathers are in place.
