How does construction of a feather be waterproof?
The feather is not waterproof because of its construction. Birds spend a great deal of time grooming their feathers (preening). While they preen, they squeeze an oil gland at the base of their body, and spread this oil over their feathers. This is what causes the feathers to repel water. The feather construction, however, is amazing and a worthwhile study.
