Turkey Feathers found
Various heritage and wild turkey feathers

This page is an addition to my other turkey feather page and turkey wing art page.

This page reflects a better camera and will probably supersede the other turkey feather page.

Although the other page has some cool links to dinosaur feathers in fossils and amber...

And once again, the warning to understand the law.

Most feathers are illegal to collect. The wild turkey is one of the few feathers found on woodlands or fields, that you can pick up.

Florida turkey feather?  I think........

Most feathers are illegal to collect.

So I apologize for the coarseness and bad taste of this photograph. However, the point needs to be stressed, that even the feathers of a vehicle killed, Roseate Spoonbill are illegal to pick up.

Same with the numerous raptors hit along the road.

End of Empire

Desperate times call for bold action.
In a desperate move to retain Florida and protect the treasure-laden galleons on their dangerous return journey to Europe, the King of Spain issues a royal decree offering refuge to all English slaves who escape Florida and pick up a musket to defend the coquina walls of Saint Augustine.
In another bold gamble, the King offers refuge to the dissatisfied Indian nations of the southeast who will take up arms against the English.
Clans, traumatized by war and disease, cross the Spanish Frontier to settle the cattle-rich land and burned missions of Florida.

Follow the descendants of the conquistador Louis Castillo in remote Spanish Florida, a wildland swept by diseases, hurricanes, and northern invasions.
