Friday mystery object #244


This week I thought I’d give you a beautiful bird skin from the Horniman collections to have a go at identifying:

Any idea what this colourful critter might be?

You can leave your suggestions in the comments box below – but please try to be cryptic if you find it easy, so other people get a chance to work it out themselves. Enjoy!

  1. i know what this is, but i was told to leave cryptic comments that may help others ID it, too. so i shall try to channel my enthusiasm into something that’s useful for everyone else.

    first clue: this bird was long classified into one taxonomic family before being removed into a different (and much more speciose) family.

  2. Funny feeling on the nape of my neck and the fact it looks so cholorful tells me what I think it is-if I’m wrong I’ll be blue.
