Tying with Red Ruffed Fruit Crow Feathers

Commonly referred to as Indian Crow, these feathers are neither from India nor
are they from a crow. These are staple feathers for the classic salmon tier being called for in hundreds of patterns.

Classic uses for fruit crow feathers range from tail and body veilings, tails, sides, cheeks and wings using the largest feathers. An expensive feather to be sure, there is no doubt when and where it is used. Impact is not sacrificed when being frugal with these feathers as one single feather leaves an impression.

Indian Crow feathers are unquestionably some of the finest feathers in fly tying. Unfortunatly, they ars also some of the most expensive, not feathers that one experiments with but rather for use in that special fly or project.

Softbills

Whoever named this group of birds "softbills" was obviously never close enough to be pinched by a toucan or speared by a heron's beak!

Members of this group vary considerably. here you will find everything from turacos that feed exclusivly on leaves and petals to carnivores kingfishers.

However, one thing all have in common is that as babies, they are all born helpless and dependent on their parents care.
