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.

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.
