BUT w/ HUMMMMMM maby change the eyes to jungle cock. next time.
HOOK---> eagle claw 254 2/0
Body ----> 4 feathers
Head-----> black thread,
EYES -----> molded silver
Epoxy coat.
p.s. don't know what the feathers are from BUT if you do please let me know Id Like find more in colors.

Looks like a silver badger saddle feather to me. Here is a pic of the saddle. sometimes the black stripe is wider.
