Feather Day at Joseph D. Grant Park

I found more than 27 feathers at Joseph D. Grant Park today. There was one section on Lower San Felipe Trail, in particular, that was a treasure trove of feathers. What a cool find! It appeared that one or more turkeys were killed, based on the number of turkey feathers in the area, and many birds and animals feasted on the remains. There were two species of owl (Barn Owl, Great Horned Owl), two species of hawk (Red-tailed Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk), and crow feathers. There were so many barn owl feathers and droppings, it appeared as though an owl must've been roosting in the grand oak tree overlooking this spot. There was also bobcat and coyote scat, which suggest they feasted there as well. Such a cool place!

In addition to the above feathers, I found an Acorn Woodpecker feather and one from a Collared Dove.
