    Skull ID help please

    Anyone have an idea what this is?

    Found it laying on the side of a field yesterday with a couple of rather large bones that were a similar size to my forearms!!

    Cheers

    I know this sounds crazy but it looks kind of like a large bird pelvis to me. Has there been ostrich or rhea present in the area?

    It certainly looks avian as opposed to mammal?

    They have both on the farm mate in enclosures, along with other exotics and peacocks!

    There we go then!

    Just looking on google, it's not an exact match but it's close to emu and rhea. Do they have any other large flightless birds?
