What is a "comb"?

A comb refers to a distinctive feature found on the heads of certain bird species. It is a fleshy, often brightly colored crest positioned atop the bird's head. Combs can vary in shape and size, but they are typically characterized by a row of raised elongated structures. These structures can take on various forms, such as spikes, knobs, or serrated ridges, and they are often vibrant in color, ranging from vivid reds to striking oranges or blues. The comb serves both functional and ornamental purposes. It may play a role in visual communication, species recognition, and attracting potential mates during courtship displays. Additionally, the comb may have physiological functions, such as regulating body temperature or enhancing the bird's vocalizations.
