Of course, even if they are hiding, you can still find
them fairly easily. Just wait till the end of the hour, and
Swallow feathers are also good for recovering your
arrows. Just wait until spring, and go to San Juan
Capistrano. They always return there. Unless you fletch with
feathers from European or African Swallows. With one or the
other of those, you can just follow the trail of cocnuts.
Now which was it?
Not that it makes the arrows any easier to find, but I do
understand the Mongols had great success using feathers from
Goldeneye Ducks for fletchings on their whistling arrows.
Didn't even need a special head.
However, a word of warning to Ayllyth: Don't use those
moulted feathers you were told about. They just fall off.
