We found some feathers we could not identify. We have seen these before but where never able to find the right species. It was found as the remainder of a bird being eaten by a predator (bird?). I did some preliminary research and given the location (Forrest with very little human activity within 3 kilometers) a woodpecker seems logical, but these have very different feathers (which I have found on other occasions). The only species I found that matched the pattern was a guineafowl, which to me seems not very logical. I certainly have never seen those fly around here.

For sure. Helmeted guineafowls don’t fly around, they walk around xd
