Feathers from Da

Jared has really gotten into mountain biking lately (well, as 'mountain' as you can get in flat Iowa).

Helmet Hair after a sweaty ride. 

 Every so often he comes home with a treasure for Emma. 


The feather on the bottom was brought home a month or so ago after Jared went riding at Seven Oaks in Boone, IA. Emma thought it was super cool (and so did I). She wanted to know what it was, so we found this site- The Feather Atlas

Here is what we decided the bottom feather is.

The search function has you choose a pattern then color and lists all the feathers it could be. It can be a little frustrating trying to figure out which one it might be, but it is a very useful and informative site. 

So when Jared came home yesterday from a mountain bike even in the Quad Cities with the top feather, we knew where to go- The Feather Atlas.

This is what we decided.

It is a little funny that he found the wild turkey feather in the Quad cities, because on one of his last rides at Seven Oaks he got spooked by a "Giant" wild turkey. 

We enjoy collecting feathers and look forward to whatever else Da brings home from his rides (he can leave the ticks there though).

Have a great Sunday!
