Colour from the season - Rooks feather black

These feathers were in my path when walking through the woodland a couple of weeks ago. All the quills had been cut off, which seemed a bit brutal. So I asked some experts in their fields(!) and both said probably rook or crow and most likely a Peregrine(falcon)capture, in which case it died quickly. These are the blacks and greys in the feathers...

"It crow'kt"- (TJ)!

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
