Quiz #21: Bird

Earlier this summer, during a walk through local woods, I stumbled upon this brightly colored feather (photos show both the upper and lower sides).  The feather's total length is 4.25 inches (about 10.8 cm).  Who did this feather belong to?

Leave a guess in the comments below. And be sure to check out the answer to last week's plant quiz on the Quiz Answers page.

  1. Northern Flicker. In the Eastern US the flickers are called yellow-shafted Flickers (red-shafted in the west) and this photo of it’s tail feathers shows why.
