A Bird In The Hand: Southern Oregon's "Feather Atlas"

Feb 7, 2020

You found a feather on the ground when you got home last night, and you just don't know which bird it came from.  Enter The Feather Atlas

It is a website set up by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's forensics laboratory in Ashland, and it provides a place to compare the feather you found with images of bird flight feathers compiled by the site. 

Steller's jay or scrub jay?  There IS a difference...

Pepper Trail from the lab stops by with details of the atlas and what it took to assemble.
