Title: The Epitome of Superstition
Specie: Mynah (Acridotheres tristis)
Description: This actually was a superstition children of Kerala used to have . Although it's a bit awkward even I used to believe it.But let me explain, seeing one mynah is considered to be a bad luck which says you would not have any true friend and would remain lonely . But if you see two mynahs it's said you would have a constant companion who would be always there with you.
Lightweight feathers – A bird's feathers are very lightweight, and smooth too. This means that they're extra aerodynamic and are very receptive to the force of the wind.
Their beak is quite light, too – Rather than having heavy bone structures in the face, a bird's beak is very light. This reduces the force of their weight, again making them very aerodynamic.
