Keywords:  rump, nape, bode, wings, jealousy
Top line between wings from nape to rump
A bird's back begins at the nape and ends at the rump. Ordinarily it is similar in color to the wings and head, although there are (as always) exceptions, such as the Downy Woodpecker with its outstanding white back. Within the back, much of the vertebra are fused together and many muscles are reduced or absent, which means that birds must rely on the neck for most upper-body flexibility. While this does mean certain advantages (such as in owls, where the head may be swiveled in almost a complete circle), it can also bode ill for species near windows (in a neck with so many bones, it may be much easier to crack or break one on impact with a glass pane).
leathering of the thoracic portion of the dorsum, bounded by the nape, bases of the wings (humeral feathering), mantle and rump.
