A feather from a Crow. Add it to an Arrow Shaft to make a useable, stabilized arrow.
In-game description

The crow feather is a material item in The Long Dark.


Feathers are used to create arrows.

They are dropped by crows, and are usually found near animal carcasses and human corpses. Feathers usually respawn after a few days. They also tend to respawn after a blizzard, which causes crows to disappear and subsequently reappear afterwards. Additionally, as long as large game animal carcasses have something left to harvest, they will continue attract crows until they decay. Thus they can be used as an easy, if temporary source of feathers.

As a feather touches the ground, it makes a small sound that can be heard if nearby.
