collecting feathers --
I've been away a few days so this may have been covered already. In some
states you can apply to get on a list to receive feathers from protected
birds who die naturally and are turned in to the dept. of wildlife
conservation (often collected by the highway department - hawks and eagles I
mean, mostly). I don't know anything about the process, but that's where I'd
start asking. Here in Oklahoma, my understanding is that Native Americans
can collect feathers from protected birds under natural death conditions for
religious and cultural use but they can't sell them. I don't know those
details either. These feathers are very important, as anyone knows who has
witnessed what happens at a pow-wow when a feather falls off a dancer's
costume.
