Just a summary...most all respondents felt the feather was from an owl (I concur). Several mentioned great horned, one shorteared, one snowy, one barred.
Given that this feather was found in the driveway of my house here in Westford at the end of August, I ruled out snowy and shorteared...while we have had one barred owl pass through, great horned seems much more plausible. Now I need to invest in a trail cam with nighttime capabilities...any suggestions?
Thanks to all who replied and also for the links to feather atlases!
