A fanatical birder blogging about Screech owls in owl box, backyard birding and wildlife in the Northeast USA.
I'm gonna call it a Cooper's Hawk wing feather. My first thought was barred owl, but they don't have that brown "V" shape; instead they have uneven brown bars.That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Thanks a lot Susan. I thought it might be a Screech owl feather but suspected that the feather was way to big.
The biggest feather on a screech owl would be a tail feather, and they have a straighter dark line instead of a "V".Cool feather ID place: Feather AtlasA good, one-stop shop for feather ID's. They don't have EVERYTHING, but it's a great place to start if you are unsure of what kind of bird it fell off of.: )
Thanks Susan, I'll check it out.
