Where can I get a bleached starling skin?

I bought mine from Jim Slattery several years ago. If you give him a call, he may still carry them. Worth asking.

Mike Houge currently carries them: http://www.eflytyer.com/materials/softhackle.html

Scroll down on the page and you will find them listed.

I just bought some starling wings from him last week (Landrail sub). Nice stuff.

I wonder how different the landrail is from our sora rail and Virginia rail? maybe a bird hunter could make a substitute.

Quite a bit lighter in color.
