This week I’m going for a slightly different approach to the mystery object. Normally I give you as much information as I have available to let you figure out what you’re looking at, but today I thought I’d give you a snippet from a specimen that I think you’ll find distinctive, but which might offer a bit of a challenge.
All of that being said, here’s this week’s mystery object:
Any idea which animal this pretty pattern might belong to?
As ever, you can leave your observations, questions and suggestions in the comments section below. Happy hunting!
Are you an absolute b*****d? Or what?!
A large, almost illegitimate creature?
I’m almost sure that this is is not a native of the European regions. Possibly a rather noisy, but well thought of, invasive species
going on a s**** hunt?
For the s**** was a boojum?
Not this time 🙂
A snipe? Woodcock?
Are these feathers photographed in situ on the bird body, or a collection thrown together?
On the bird’s body
For now I say O…s t….a, butI may come back to that later
Maybe, I looked at the littler one, and that could be it too.
No need to come back to it 😉
I shore am having a hard time finding this. Maybe it will all be in-avian.
Oh Man… I have to stop being cooped up to get this.
