I first noticed the purple feather on my walk along our tree-lined ditch (creek). I picked the brightest one, studied it, and carried it with on my walk till I found Dad on the yard.
I asked him what bird he thought it belonged to. I just showed him that one feather with the very purple splotch on it. He was sure that I had colored it on there.
I went back to the area by the lagoon where I had found it and saw other feathers including the ones shown here.
When Dad saw the other feather he figured it out. What do you think it is?
Wait till you hear the rest of the story. It'll help us "Get Kansas!"
