Hi DarrelP, 

Not to step on OP's toes, but that wing is what's referred to as a "mixed wing". Without referencing the pattern it looks like it is made up of Golden Pheasant tail (or maybe Florican Bustard), Lady Amherst Pheasant tail, Kori Bustard, Golden pheasant tippet, and Guinea Fowl. May have missed a feather or two. Small strips are stacked on top of each other (the broad way, not edge to edge) then tied in and stroked back with the fingers. This breaks up the fibers a little bit and causes them to mix. 

Anyone who knows the makeup of the wing better please feel free to correct me.
