“One of the light horny epidermal outgrowths that form the external covering of the body of birds and that consists of a shaft bearing on each side a series of barbs which bear bargules which in turn bear barbicels commonly ending in hooked hamuli and interlocking with the barbules of an adjacent barb to link the barbs into a continuous vane.”
