Hi Marlene,

That is one of Australia's easiest to identify feathers (and strangely I think 
we had another very similar request recently). It is an inner secondary of the 
Australian White Ibis, in this case from the left wing. See eg the bottom right 
of the picture in Pizzey & Knight page 121. The black and white with the long 
rather fluffy loose inner barbs of the feather are totally distinctive.
