Finding a Feather

When I talk about noticing the little things in life, there are so many to be on the lookout for. Today I was in the backyard at the bird bath and noticed the feather (below in the photo) on the ground. Most people would probably keep walking. But I picked it up and I think it is a dove feather. I also researched to find the meaning behind the different colored feathers you find. You can believe or not, I choose to believe there can sometimes be a hidden message behind finding a feather.

The chart above shows an opinion of what each color represents. Again, your choice to believe or not. Photo courtesy of

Grey feathers can symbolise peace, as well as neutrality. If you see a grey feather in your path, your angels may be trying to tell you that the answer to a certain situation may not be as straightforward as a yes or no. I also read more about the grey feather. 

My message for today….

The grey feather might have appeared to reassure you that the road ahead is much more positive. The feather will not undo the past nor will it erase bad memories, but it could help to ease your pain and suffering.

Whether you have lost your job or someone you care about has passed away, the grey feather could be trying to tell you that everything will be okay. It might not seem like it at the moment but you are a strong person and you will survive this. 

So the next time you find a feather, pay attention! Although the most common feather sent from angels is white, angel feathers can come in all kinds of colors.

Below is a photo of the feather I found in my backyard today.

  1. I do not know or speak the same pigeons, dear Carol … there are no pigeons with colored feathers … with us the pigeons are gray, white or mixed … gray and white … pigeons with colored feathers are not

  2. I find continuous feathers because the park is to my house and there are many pigeons. My granddaughter very often gives me and my mother and feathers. I think there are many symbols that can tell us something.
