A complete Widgeon skin with perfect matching pair of wings and well marked barred flanks, plus a wide range of plumage of use to the fly tier. Also the wings offer good quills for winging wets and dries, similar to Teal/ Grey duck quills in colour.
The speckled plumage of the red grouse has many uses for the soft hackle fan & the wings & tail form the basis for the grouse series of wets.

The French Partridge flank feathers are well known components of a few Mayfly patterns, however the other plumage of this bird gives us much to play with.
Finer wing quills than crow quills, the grey scalp hackles are excellent for spider patterns or soft long head hackles on variants of traditional palmered flies such as the Zulu.
