availability of feathers from drake shovelers

Postby atlanticsalmonflyguy » Fri Oct 20, 2006 5:17 am

Hi Folks,
I am looking for Shoveler drake feathers, specifically those few yellow-ish brown barred sort of ones that are under the wings along the upper flanks... above the legs...at least that was where they were on the one bird I saw mounted at the pawn shop the other day. This is one species I have not shot, so do not know exactly where the feathers are supposed to be. My question is, if they are under the wings, and not easily visible etc... and should any one have any loose ones... is it possible to get any and for what in return? I only need a few matched pairs.

Thanks and best wishes
