Barred Owl feathers

The preceding photos show a couple of Barred Owl feathers that I found last summer while walking through a residential neighborhood located beside Kirk Park, a large wooded area in Fairfax County, Virginia USA. Paul Spring, a small stream, flows through the park year-round. The larger feather is ~12″ L x 2″ W; the smaller feather is ~10″ L x 1″ wide. I found the feathers in almost the same location, about a week apart. Thanks to Steffi, a Project Noah citizen scientist, for correctly identifying my unknown bird feathers!
