I just came across a wonderfully written blogpost by Mermaiden Creations, about feathers. I just wanted to share it with you!
Please make sure you read the last couple paragraphs, where she explains the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
So many artists and crafters unknowningly break these laws and put themselves at risk for prosecution by the federal government because of it.
Please remember, though a feather seems like a "free gift" from the bird, federal laws prohibit their sale (indeed, their posession) for the protection of the bird.
Thanks so much for blogging that for us!
