So I found this REALLY good article today that explains the mechanism behind blue feather coloration in a way that's entertaining to laypeople with minimal scientific knowledge, yet doesn't mangle any of the science the way so many "science" articles aimed at Joe & Jane Average tend to do. Unfortunately, it's on a website run by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. A group whose infeasible goals and exploitative methods I resent deeply.

In an attempt to spread Steve Martindale's excellent BURD WISDOM while also preventing the people I wish to spread it to from giving PETA's website any traffic, I'm going to Copypasta the entire article onto my own blog.

And that's it. That's the article.
