Burt just dropped one of my favourite sorts of feathers today which I love to bits! I recently gave away my collection of feathers similar to this one, sotoday I start a new collection of them.

I find these ones extra interesting as they have more than one colour and also have like a little downy feather attached to the underside.
I don’t know if all macs have these or not, I know that I’ve never found them on any other bird I have had now or in the past.

Next time I'm home I'll have to snap a picture of my favorites from Grumbles! Levi tends to destroy any dropped feathers so I don't have many from her though

I love these kind too. It's amazing how the different colors just seem to blend. We have bags of JaJaBinks feathers & are saving JaKhu's as well.

That is super beautiful Shez! Very bonny.

I have a feather like that with splotches, but not as colourful, not sure where it is either. Some of my faves are Sydneys face that I started collecting a couple of moults back.

Limited interactions to keep him calm, excitement turns into impulsiveness which usually gets ugly.

So funny head size difference
I haven’t noticed any of Birdies other head feathers having both yellow and white on them. That feather was from underneath his crest.
