Very nice drawing. It has a lot of details, the colours give life to it.

Nice pen work and just the right touch of colour - dainty and elegant :)

I love the colour on the eye of the feather. Those pens you used look really nice.

Oh thats so pretty. Love the color.
However the "stems" seem to be a bit flat in contrast to the beautiful colors of the eye.

Are the smuges in the back ground accidental?

I like the graceful waving lines - gives a great 'feathery' effect.

Thanks everyone for the comments... :D
Bendaini... the stems really are like this in life... stark white except perhaps at the very top. The smudges are the very pale wash in lilac and pink that I've added round the edge, the scanner did a poor job of picking it up.. so there's more there than you can see.
I admit I'm learning in all areas all the time, and appreciate any imput.:)
