New York City is a spectacular place to be during the holidays, from the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting to the shopping to the (hopefully not too much) snow! We here at The Feather Place NYC are getting into the spirit with, you guessed it, feathers! Our showroom mannequin is decked out in Christmas attire and our feather wreaths, trees and more are giving off that warm fuzzy feeling.
Scientists have discovered that perhaps Dinosaurs were not the drab creatures they are usually portrayed as, but fluffy and feathered!
Last week in Alberta, Canada paleontologists discovered 70 million year old amber with perfectly preserved dinosaur feathers inside. Different kinds of feathers were found – from the most simple meant for insulation to complex colorful plumage . The amber preserved the feathers so well that they are actually able to discern the color of the feathers which will bring us closer to understanding the way Dinosaurs looked.
Fashion Week shows that designers love feathers just as much as we do!
Peter Som’s upbeat and colorful show featured Ostrich Fringe on dresses and skirts that will be simply perfect for next spring! His royal blue and shocking pink feathered frocks are just a clue as to what colors are in store for next year.
Like this look? You can DIY by sewing our Ostrich Fringe onto the bottom of any skirt or dress!
Peacock feathers add a little something extra special to this wedding decor. It nice to see how a little imagination and creativity with feathers can enhance a table set up, a boutinaire or flower bouquet. What a sweet presentation!

The Raptor Resource Project brings you the Decorah Eagles from atop their tree at the fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa.
The live video feed is streamed online 24/7. At night an infrared light provides night vision to viewers through the cam. Infrared light is not visible to eagles, they do not see it or know it is there.
Also See the First Look at the eaglets below….adorable!
