    I am posting because I was wondering if anyone had Scarlet Macaw feathers that they would be willing to part with. I tie flies and Scarlet Macaw is one of the feathers called for in some of the patterns that I tie. I would be looking for the wing covert feathers that are yellow with the blue tips and also the center tail feathers from the bird. Lastly I would be looking for the powder blue colored tail coverts. Here are a few photos of some of the flies that I have tied and also the feathers that I am looking for. If you have some of these feathers and would be willing to part with them shoot me a PM.

    Try finding a local bird rescue. I know the one we volunteered at would save feathers to exchange for donations from folks looking for feathers.
    You could also try etsy and/or ebay/craigslist. Good luck!
    Beautiful flies by the way! They're amazing!
