Description

Found by following discordant feather trail over a few square yards, so I can't be positive all feathers are from the same bird but definitely some are, especially judging by the age of the bone and feathers. Sternum is very weathered, some of the feathers have grown into a mushroom:

And feathers have been separated into other obs:
