Hi I think i know wich feathers are but i dont know the name in englis(Im spanish)And i cant found the link,u found feathers of Pagalo grande(spanish bird name)
Belen
Catharacta skua
Val
No skuas can be found anywhere near that area. I’d suggest a tringa sp.
tomzag
thank you both. To tell the thuth, I expected this could be Actitis hypoleucos
Val
Think that’s one of the least likely sandpipers from the list. Tringa sps have better matching feathers
tomzag
Thank you. I agree.
tomzag
Thank you very much. Having compared these feathers to others you have suggested I think they match Pluvialis apricaria best.
