  I found this three feathers below the canopy of an holm oak. I'd love to know what bird or birds they belong to. The photo shows four feathers, the biggest one is from a Honey Buzzard I collected in Galicia, just added here to have a known reference.

I suggest Tawny Owl.

  Thank you, Ian. I also think the feather that is shown on its own belongs to a Tawny owl. The pic that shows the set of different feathers: Tawny owl, Honey buzzard, and the last two feathers might be from a Common buzzard.
  Kind regards,
  Carlos.
