THAT'S SOME DO - The pointed crest of the Northern Cardinal is strictly feathers. Some extra long feathers grow from the top of the head and can be raised and lowered at will. Birds with crests use them to communicate, generally raising the feathers when they are excited or aggressive, and lowering them when they are relaxed or submissive.
