Owl plumage. What an incredible pin!!! If anyone has birds they can share with everyone on Pedegru would be a gift! We have hundreds of bird categories in the gruPedia so some real birds for the pages would really be fun. But this one...a walk through the woods on a winter morning, a pine branch, crisp and crunching snow under our feet, bundled up and warm, and this...a genuine surprise and gift of nature. Were I just to have been the one to capture it but thank you to the one who did!
