Feather ID Please


Recommended Posts

Hello.  My 7 yo daughter found this feather in our yard in Southwest Ohio.  I have tried multiple Feather ID sites and google searches. If anyone would be kind enough to identify, she would really like to know. Thank you.

Not a Screech. They wouldn't have that much black. I'm having trouble finding anything with that pattern. Closest I've come was a certain variety of chicken with that same pattern on a body feather, so some sort of game bird seems like a good guess. Most of the raptor feathers are barred, not whatever you call that pattern.

Wow. Thanks for all the responses. The picture is zoomed in.  Below is the original. We do have woods around us so most of the suggestions are possible. I’ll see if I can get a ruler next to it but have to get it from my daughter.

Interesting.  OK.  I'll go with that.  We don't have any chickens super close, but I suppose the wind could have done that.  Again, I really appreciate everyone helping out.  Thank you very much.
