Magpie Feather: Here in Britain we salute magpies by saying “‘’Good morning Mr Magpie, I hope your family are well” as often magpies are seen as a bad omen. I think this gives a bad impression of what really is a beautiful inquisitive British bird. The magpie feather can also be associated with communication, flamboyance, intelligence, expression, illumination, witchcraft and magic.

Green Woodpecker Feather: This species of bird is associated with opportunity, progress, grounding and connecting to the earth. They are also seen as prophets and messengers of warnings, showing you that change is coming.

Brown Owl Feather: The owl is symbolic of wisdom, independence, spirituality, the depths of the night and the moon. There are many meanings in ancient folklore, from omens, to death, good luck and wizardry.
