Feathers from White-eyed Gull
Dear members and bird watchers
I don´t know if this is the right folder to ask this question. But I try. Previously posed in the birding folder, but I try the Gull folder
I found feathers from a White-eyed Gull See attached pictures.
Anyone here know how to identify feathers and could be so kind to tell me what the different feathers are.
I think (stabbing in the dark here) that # 1 and 2 is from the wing
#3 is a white, same as #2, young bird?
#4 is from the body
#5 is a white, same as #4, young bird?
#6 is a small from the body
#7 is down, just to keep the bird warm
Any ideas? The dark feathers are almost like skin and the white feathers are downy like. Anyone know if the flight feathers are almost like skin?
Kind regards and happy birding
