    how do people get flicker feathers around you??

    Shake a flicker???

    Sorry I don't know the real answer. I think most of the guys I know that have them buy them from Crazy Crow Trading Post. You might try a sporting goods store that sells supplies for fly fishing and fly tying. In KC we have Cabela's and they have a really large fly area.

      flicker feathers are on that list of illegal to sell or trade kinda thing... I am not sure if I have ever heard of anyone having thier taken away for possession... but they are one of the many many species that are protected. A flicker by the way if you did'nt know is a species of woodpecker...but I forget the correct name for it. Crazy crow sells a very nice look alike if you are interested.
      Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

                Occasionally a Flicker will come to the suet feeder. They look a little like the more common black & white Hairy or Downy Woodpeckers except they are about twice the size, with a bigger red cap, and over all lighter in color. Flickers here in the east all have bright yellow colored feather shafts, and in western states have bright red colored shafts (Northern Yellow Shafted Flicker and Norther Red Shafted Flicker). They really are pretty birds, little acrobats on the feeder.

                  I started collecting these feathers recently, seem to be a few living out in our neck of the mountains. Nice bright orange-red shafts.

                    I have a pair of flickers who come and eat at my bird feeders. Sometimes, especially during the warm months, they drop a few feathers. Last summer I was in the yard and heard one singing. I walked over towards him and found 2 feathers laying on the ground. It was like he was telling me to come and get them. They are a beautiful yellow.

                      Someone gave me a Wandering Bull catalogue and there are some in their catalog that look good. I've never ordered from them, though.

                        wandering bull is a good company, i've bought seed beads at their shop, they are very helpful. I'm sure the 'flicker feathers' they sell are hand paints tho... no one in thier right mind would be selling actual flicker feathers

                            Even if the feathers themselves predate the Migratory Bird Act, you can still get nailed for selling/purchasing them today. If you get caught with feathers (or ANY other part) from a protected bird, you're probably looking at a stiff fine. So buying on ebay is a big risk. I've never heard of anyone doing jail time unless he/she was caught shooting or otherwise harming a protected species.

                            Protected=migratory=damn near every wild bird you can think of!!

                            Unless and except as permitted by regulations made as hereinafter provided in this subchapter, it shall be unlawful at any time, by any means or in any manner, to pursue, hunt, take, capture, kill, attempt to take, capture, or kill, possess, offer for sale, sell, offer to barter, barter, offer to purchase, purchase, deliver for shipment, ship, export, import, cause to be shipped, exported, or imported, deliver for transportation, transport or cause to be transported, carry or cause to be carried, or receive for shipment, transportation, carriage, or export, any migratory bird, any part, nest, or eggs of any such bird, or any product, whether or not manufactured, which consists, or is composed in whole or part, of any such bird or any part, nest, or egg thereof, included in the terms of the conventions between the United States and Great Britain for the protection of migratory birds concluded August 16, 1916 (39 Stat. 1702), the United States and the United Mexican States for the protection of migratory birds and game mammals concluded February 7, 1936, the United States and the Government of Japan for the protection of migratory birds and birds in danger of extinction, and their environment concluded March 4, 1972 (FOOTNOTE 1) and the convention between the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics for the conservation of migratory birds and their environments concluded November 19, 1976.


                            This is why catalogs only sell painted chicken/turkey/duck feathers! Feathers from birds raised for the pet trade (ie, parrots, macaws, etc) are fair game as well.

                            The "it's ok for skins to own eagle feathers" act came later. Still can't sell 'em though.

                              Sad story about this.

                              In Missouri a Kindergarten boy brought in his colllection of feathers that he had collected from around his bird feeder for show and tell. It happened that an agent from Missouri Department of Conservation was their the same day. They confenscated the whole collection.
