"Pardon our mess, but we are in process of molting and as soon as we finish shedding these old feathers ...Our new website will be up!"

In case you were WONDERING…why do birds molt? The simple answer is because all animals shed their skin — even you! In mammals, especially humans, this is an ongoing process that's rarely noticed.  Molt keeps birds in top flying condition by replacing feathers that have become worn or damaged with completely new feathers.   It takes a lot of energy to build new feathers.  As a result, timing is important—and birds typically time their molts to avoid other periods of high energy demands, such as nesting or migration… and the time has come for Spector & Associates to do this.  Our new “tip top flying condition” includes Biomimicry!

Biomimicry is the practice of applying lessons from nature to the invention of healthier, more sustainable processes, designs and technologies for people. Biomimetic designers (“biomimics”) focus on understanding, learning from, and emulating the strategies used by living things, with the intention of creating designs, processes and technologies that are sustainable.
