Straighten them up so you can fly right.


If you're going to fly, you better have wings. That means you better have your feathers on those wings all line up and pruned well.

It may look like these Ibis at Lafreniere Park in Metairie, just outside of New Orleans, are picking for insects, but more likely they are just straightening their feathers -- not the one on the right, picking up a crop of feathers and laying them back right.
