My granddaughter found this feather in their yard and would like to find out what type of bird it's from. Friend of hers says it's an Eagle feather...I think it has to be from something else

Looks like it's related to the bird feather I found.

It does look a lot like these wild turkey feathers.

Thanks guys, I thought it was a turkey feather as well, but I couldn't find a comparable photo like you shared bobcat. Oh, by the way, Bobcat, did you ever find out exactly what your feather was?
