Found feather

I found this feather yesterday in my front yard. I'm not sure what bird it comes from. Maybe an eagle? We have a pair of sea eagles that fly overhead quite a lot.

Thanks, but no chance -- those are American birds.

Namaste Pip

Fairly sure (but not absolutely sure!) that it once belonged to an Aussie scrub turkey ... you know the one, bright red head, looks a bit like a cross between Satan and a chook (that's Aussie for Chicken to those from the lands up-over).

Great description of a brush turkey, Beau! Yes, it might well be that, although I haven't seen one in these parts. Plenty in the district, of course. Thanks for the suggestion.
