What kind of feather is this?

It's about two inches long, muted reddish tone, found just inside windows(!)

Thanks!

I wish it was focused more sharply. It would also be helpful if there were a ruler (or something of known size) in the photo to help give a sense of scale.
You're saying it was _inside_ the house? I'd be suspicious of it having come from some non-wild-bird source in that case — maybe it fell from the feather boa of some floozy you had over for a nightcap? :-)
