Our Lady of the Feathers?

Cross posted from PepperWords.

This is an odd thing, I realize, but I have to wonder . . . Does anyone have any thoughts about queens or goddesses associated with birds and/or feathers?

I'm trying to identify a picture: a pale woman with red-brown hair dressed in peacock feathers and a helm of white feathers reminiscent of an eagle (complete with golden beak). She appears to be a kind of warrior queen-goddess as she is also holding a long spear. I can't post the image here, else I would.

I know that Hera/Juno is associated with peacocks, so perhaps it is her. I've also considered Rhiannon; isn't she associated with birds?

A mere exercise, a curiosity. But if you have any ideas about it, I'd be interested to hear them.
