Nature has selected some birds in a special way - crowned them. Of course, they are not literally crowned heads. But thanks to the tuft, they look very original and regal.

Individual representatives of almost every family have such tufts of feathers. The list of scallop functions is impressive: demonstrating certain emotions and intentions, attracting a partner, interacting with the outside world, including notification of dominance, threat and an invitation to fight. And, of course, the crest is simply beautiful. For us – people who observe the life of feathered creatures from the outside.
