@eric I observed many birds in my life ans I always wondered what's the real difference between Crested and tufted. 🤔
@eric got it : "As verbs the difference between tuft and crested is that tuft is to provide or decorate with a tuft or tufts while crested is (crest).
As a noun tuft is a bunch of feathers, grass or hair, etc, held together at the base.
As a adjective crested is having a crest, or ornamental tuft (on an animal) or plume (on a helmet)."
Personal instance for myself.
