I took a couple of photos of a feather as I walked beside Cluny Lagoon. However, because of the large length and with my eyes squinting against the pervasive sunlight, I missed seeing that the entire feather was not within the photo frame.


This was a very very large feather.  You can see the front of my walking boot next to the feather. I placed my heel at the quill end of the feather so you can get an idea of the length of the feather.


So – which type of bird lost a feather?  My first reaction is that the feather will be from an endangered Tasmanian Wedged Tail Eagle.  Is there a blog follower who can identify this feather?
