    There is pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes,
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar, I love not man the less, but Nature more.

    Might have a few from one of the Tit family there as well. Is that a gold/yellow colouration on some of them?

    From the first post:
    Like mentioned, first is pheasant, but second is barn owl, one below looks like buzzed to me, but could be wrong. The downy ones to the right are barn own again, but not sure about the bottom two. The right one looks like woodpecker.

    From the second post:
    Blackish ones could be jack, but I find it hard to tell with black feathers, bottom ones look like finch (top) and more downy feathers from something else, possible the owl again, or maybe pigeon. Again, it's hard to tell downy feathers from each species, as many look similar/the same, so you only have the size, and surrounding feathers to go by.

    If I'm mistaken with any of those, I'm sure someone will correct me
