  1. I have had a bunch of broken bits of Oligocene mammal coprolites sitting in a cup for years. I got them before I had a proper microscope. I decided to pick through another one last night. This one had what I thought could be a rodent incisor. So I started excavating with my X-acto blade. As I uncovered the bone, I realized it was not a tooth. I started noticing these very fine crescent shaped objects (which I unfortunately did not photograph). So I decided to give the poo a little vinegar bath overnight. As I lightly removed an unremarkable bit of fossilized fecal mass this morning, it split away revealing what might be a feather. I wet a bit of downy feather and photographed it for comparison. What do you all think? @Carl, didn't you have a coprolite with a feather inclusion? If so, did it look like this? The bone that I exposed is very furrowed and hollow. Of course this may not mean anything other than it is partially digested. Could it be a bird bone? @Auspex Here is the before and after photo of the coprolite fragment. Here is a magnified image of the a wet modern feather and the possible undigested feather.
  2. Feather bird.

    Feather bird. Green River, bought it in Tucson Are there publications? Thank you
  3. Feather from the neogene

    Hi guys, Last week I was on a vacation in Balchik on the northern coast of the black sea and I visited a small fossil site there. It's a small shoreline littered with mudstone and limestone (I think). Previously there I have been finding bones of sea mammals but this time I found something even more interesting... From what I can tell it's a feather. I just wanted to ask you if you can confirm that it's a feather. I was also wandering if there is anyway that it is a modern birds feather somehow imprinted on the fallen rock. Happy New Year to everyone !!!
  4. Burmite amber with dinosaur feathers?

    Hello! I see this 3 amber Burmese pieces with feathers. The seller told my that the feathers are from dinosaur. I am looking for amber information but is difficult to find a good resource. What do you think? Amber 1
  5. Hi there! I wanted to ask you for your opinion on this amber fossil. Does it seems genuine to you? Would you have any recommendations what to look out for? And how common the fake amber fossils actually are? I am quite new to this, I was an enthusiastic fossil hunter, usually searching in slate deposits, but I've recently came across these amber fossils and I was blown away by the level of detail that has been preserved in these. I am actually an ornithologist engaging mostly in educational/popularization field, doing all sorts of events for schools and pre-schoolers and I was thinking that having a specimen of preserved feather would be outstanding thing to share, because it's just marvelous how the feather structure is similar to the ones we know and yet it is milions of years old. So going back to my original question, I would like to get hold of a piece like that, but I really want to make sure that the piece is the real thing. Is there any proven way to tell? I've read in the rules that I shouldn't name anyone or post any links, so I won't do that. Thank you very much for any piece of advice!

  7. Hello together, I have been finding online offers of feathers in Burmite recently, some look rather like recent birds´, other look structurally different at least to the everyday feather you get, the later often called dinosaur feathers. Price range is enormous. Any advice on how to recognice the good ones? I wouldn´t expect to afford a nonavian dinosaur feather, but a cretacious Bird would be nice, if real. Thanks in advance, J
  8. FOSSIL FEATHER - COLORADO

    Hello guys! Happy new year to everyone! Saw this interesting fossil listed as a rare fossil bird feather from Parachute Creek, Colorado. Here are my questions 1. Is it really a fossil feather? ( I was thinking more like some kind of seed but It does look a lot like a feather) 2. If it is, is it really a bird feather? What else could it be? Really Appreciate the help, here are the only pics I have. Cheers!
  9. Eocene Green River Formation ichnofossils

    I would like some help identifying some trace fossils. These are all from the same site from the "Soldier Summit Fossil Track Horizon" area in the Eocene Green River Formation. My grandson and I collected these for his science fair project, so any insight is welcome. Fossil A is obviously a tail feather. It's length is 55mm. Fossil B has shore-bird tracks, but please notice the insect track in the right side. What kind of insect could have made this? Fossil C and D are different sides of the same rock. For side C, I initially thought that this might be bird tracks, but I they don't look anything like the classic pattern in the sample B. Fossil D is covered with fine lines, perhaps some worm tracks? Close-ups E and F zoom in on these tracks. Close-up E shows a mottled pattern on the left, perhaps an alge mat? On the left, a wavy track. I don't know how a worm could create this pattern. Close-up F shows fine lines.
  10. Feather like fossil

    This is a fossil that a friend gave me. I have no idea where it originated, although CO or NE could be a good guess. Any idea what it is? It is very fine. It looks to me like a feather, but under the microscope it doesn't have any of the features of a feather. The fibers are just straight and very thin. The pictures are of the two opposing sides, which fit together.

    xinxuxiaolsmallestdinosazhaoianusmicrorapnaturezhonghetopost200010b4c14c3.pdf the other paper on this species(Hwang/Norell) is ,naturally,in Fruitbat's Library,possibly in some others as well salient points(or:"things you might want to remember about this article")(apart from osteological details): edit,hours later:possible repost,because I just noticed this one in Fruitbat's Library. Joe,i feel i owe you an apology. note Maniraptora (GAUTHIER): I posted the Gauthier,a very influential cladistic paper,a while back Note 2: "Archaeoraptor" turned out to be forged
  15. Could someone please help me identify this fossil. I'm not sure if it is a plant or feather. My instincts tell me it is some sort of filtering sea plant. I found it while fossil hunting with my boys on top of small mountain approximately 3 miles west-northwest of Camp Wood, TX. The geologic atlas of Texas indicates that the formation is the Lower Devils River / Upper Glen Rose (Lower Cretaceous). The fossil is 1.5" x 0.5".
  16. Fossil feather?

  17. Bird Feather

  18. Fossils found in Florissant...
  19. Hi all, I wish to get a Green River flower or feather. The entire fossil, including matrix, shouldn't be larger than 3" by 3". I can trade you one of my fossils (I've got amber, iridescent ammonites, croc teeth, edmontosaurus teeth etc). Thank you.
  20. Feather Or Plant Fossil

    Hello, This is a fossil found by my father, probably in Illinois. USA. Although I am not a paleontologist I am guessing it is a feather because of the detail; however I think the height of convex shape (3/8") (or depth of the concave impression) that was created would indicate a plant of some kind. The length of the fossil itself is 4". Thank you for any help you can give me. Lunaqua
