Toronto, ON, Canada
It was about 2 1/2 inches long with light brown outer circumference
I found this feather near an abandoned nest box? Any ideas? I think it is a house wren?
I’m not that good at identifying feathers, but it might be a Carolina wren, or like you said a House wren. I do know one thing though, that its a wing feather. Nice picture, its clear and you can see all the colors! I’m going to post a picture of a Carolina wren’s nest soon.
Thanks Anna, however if you saw my last post about the mystery nest; I collected the feather from that nest.
Its very hard to ID feathers. I have no idea.
