A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Nature School For Teachers - Fall 2020 Launch!
Feather, found in Fort Myers, FL in July of 2015.
found it on my college campus, in fort myers florida...campus is near preserve and woods. It is approximately 7 - 8 inches longthanks for the suggestions!!!
It is a Red-shouldered Hawk's secondary flight feather.
This is definitely a left wing feather... a secondary flight fleather I believe. But in order to get possible ID, a bit more info is needed: 1) Where was it found, specifically? Suburban backyard? River? Forest? City? (Different birds are found in different habitats, so this would help me narrow down my options considerably.) 2) How long is it? (This would tell me the SIZE of the bird, which would narrow down the choices even further. ):)
