I think amazonx is right, molting -- not lunch -- was probably the cause. At first glance, it looked as if a bird exploded over the lawn, only there was no body, no blood, no guts, and nothing but fluffy white feathers. And none of the feathers were long, the way wing and tail feathers are.

To me, those look like undercoat feathers. And there aren't enough of the other kinds around to look like a crime scene. I would think molting for the oncoming spring and summer. :)

I think you're right. I couldn't find anything but those nice downy feathers. I wonder what kind of bird it was as those feathers weren't small. Do Canadian Geese molt? We have those around here (although I can't say that I've *ever* seen any in our neighborhood).

All birds that spend time in temperate climates molt. It it goes from cold to hot, back to cold, they can't maintain all that fluff in July, now can they?

Looks like an exploded feather pillow to me. I've had a LOT of experience with those. All white feathers, all the same size? Pillow.
