Whose feather is it?
Have you ever found a bird feather and wondered what species it came from? The Forensics Lab of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service can help with their Feather Atlas. You can compare your feather to similar feathers by choosing 1) a pattern and 2) the most striking color from an array of choices. Then browse through high quality pictures to determine which feather matches yours! You can also browse through their library of images by common name or taxonomy.
