My son came home today with the prettiest feather he found on the road.
He handed it to me, and I wasn't able to identify what type of bird it might have come from. It has the most beautiful golden yellow color, with the tip of the feather being black. I surely would love to see what bird this has come from!
I will have to take some time and research birds of North Carolina and perhaps I can find out what bird this might be from.
Do you know what bird might have feathers of this coloring?
**Edited to add:
The feather measures 4 and 1/4 inches tip to tip
and 3/4" at the widest part.
Thank you to one of my blog readers, The mystery has been solved!
This feather is from a Northern Red Flicker
