Barred feather, found on ground on bank of creek. Half of the feather is black, half of it is a dark blue. 4" long, 1/2" wide. Feather is slightly translucent. Black horizontal stripes through the blue half of the feather.
Thrilling to have an eagle fly over!
Exciting to see two of them so late in the season.
Female at King Salmon
