Symbolism of bird feathers

My google-fu has failed me on this one.

Basically, my MC needs a working knowledge of the symbolism of bird feathers. I've managed to turn up vague "birds of prey feathers are useful in defence spells"-style descriptions, but I'm looking for something a more specific description of the attributes associated with different species. It doesn't matter which species or which culture the symbol is used in - the story's removed enough from that that I can work with whatever information I can get.

Thanks in advance.
