Can anyone identify these feathers. I found them today alongside the river. I am guessing they are from a Canadian Goose, but am not really sure.

They look like blue heron to me. I could fill bags of them up around here, but we are not able to legally posess them here, even moulted feathers.

Never thought about heron. Where I found them there are a lot of Canadian Geese. There were all kinds of geese droppings around the feathers as well. The feathers are soft but just a little bit coarser than the goose shoulder feathers I have form Hareline Dubbing Inc.. Eagle maybe? The feathers were not all in one place but seem to be from the same bird.
