The soft feathers of my backyard
Fortunately I live in an area rich in birdlife.
The backyard of my house is a meeting place for several species of small birds because I always leave them water and some seeds for food.
In return, they leave me some scattered feathers that come off after their occasional baths.
Many times these feathers are excellent for tying soft hackle flies.
Here I show you some flies that I have tied with those feathers.
