Neat fork pattern! I’m not too knowledgeable about black-tailed deer in particular, but I do know that in mule deer, the tines fork in a somewhat even branching pattern as seen here, while in white-tailed deer the tines all emerge from a main branch.

The first feather is definitely Barred Owl, but the second is Red-shouldered Hawk.

This is a primary wing feather.

I'd guess peacock secondary wing feather- proportions look about right and the markings(specifically, the lack thereof) are right for a feather in that placement. See this link- https://www.featherbase.info/en/species/...

The spots at the bottom indicate that it is, at least, some type of woodpecker.

It's hard to narrow down when the feather is just a small body feather. It's definitely from a bird in Passeridae, perhaps robin or sparrow.

Looks like a Dove or pigeon feather. Columbiformes have a unique body feather structure that sets them apart from other small songbird body feathers. The thicker rachis is one of the different traits.
