It always helps to include a ruler or something on which to assess the size of 
the feather and advise us what part of the country it was found in, or habitat 
or something. But yes I think you are right with Pheasant Coucal. Tail feathers 
of Laughing Kookaburras are sort of like that but I think the barring is not 
broken and they have white tips. Also the shape fits In my thoughts better for 
Pheasant Coucal.

Second post about this feather...
I sent the email without the picture...

Can anyone identify the bird species this feather came from? 
I’m asking on behalf of a kid who is just getting into birdwatching ...
Is it Pheasant Coucal or kookaburra or neither??
