The fox has killed a bird in my garden unfortunately. I thought the feathers were unusual enough to try to identify it.

  • I agree with Catlady, cock Pheasant, probably from around the shoulder area.

  • Thanks everyone.  I suppose he must have killed it on the Diana and brought a wing to our garden for a late night snack

  • At a guess Janet, I would say Male Pheasant.

  • The feathers are all quite small - see my thumb at the bottom of the photo
