Filoplumes ? No Pic

Recommended Posts

So I learned another new word today. Filoplumes! I think I may know what those hairs or feathers look like but I was wondering if anyone could show it on a photo, to leave no doubt for me. Seems to me the hairs around the beak of the bird would qualify as Filoplumes, am I right or wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Mike.....here's a few images taken last winter of a redpoll and a pine grosbeak that shows the fine filoplumes on the back of the birds neck or nape....another type of filoplumes(semiplumes) are found on the birds wings and other areas......the feathers at the base of the birds beak are "bristles"....

and on pine grosbeak...not the clearest image for sure

Jonny, thanks for taking the time to show that for me. That's very interesting. I'll start looking for filoplumes from now on.

Nice, Jonny. Mike, my response is not to answer your inquiry, Jonny already did a fine job of that. But since I am not known for my steady hands, I just had to see if I could find one lousy little filoplume in all the photos I have taken. The quest was on. And that's what I found--one little filoplume from last fall. Nope, wait--there might be five little filoplumes in one photo. Bonus!:

Mike - I asked the same question a week or so ago - but didn't have the name. here

Thanks to ShawnZ and Jonny I got the appropriate label, and helped me id it in this image. I was amazed/shocked to see that I actually got a shot with this much detail.

    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
