Friday mystery object #317

For this week’s mystery object I’ve decided to stick with my favourite subject of skulls. This time it’s a bird from the Dead Zoo’s collection, that was in a drawer labelled “Unidentified” – let’s fix that!


Any idea what species this skull belonged to? I have my suspicions, but I’d love to hear what you think.

As always, you can leave your clues, questions and suggestions in the comments section below. Have fun!

  1. That distinctive < at the head end of the beak leads me to suspect that this is a dabbler at the edge of the sea (or other bodies of water). A catcher of shellfish and small crustaceans with a name that implies more refined tastes. There are black ones in the Falkland Islands.
