Friday mystery object #158


I have another bird skull for you to identify this Friday – much smaller than last week’s:

Any idea what it might be from?

I should have access to the internet this week, so I’ll do my best to respond to your questions. Good luck!

  1. Looks like a small passerine. The bill doesn’t seem heavy enough to be a finch, however the way the upper and lower mandibles are configured in the photo suggests a substantial bill sheath. The infra-orbital foraminae are distinctive, but I expect that’s subject to a lot of individual variation within a species. I’ll be interested to see how the guesses develop.
