An odd sort of bird ID challenge...
Last week I took a photo of one of the most picked clean bird carcasses I've ever seen: http://bit.ly/doYq1F. What is it?
I'm pretty sure I know what species it is, but then I had the advantage of studying it in person. The colors are kinda bleached out by the harsh sunlight, but I wasn't about to pick it up and move it to a spot with better lighting. :-)
And if you know something about fish, I'm curious to know what species this picked-over carcass is: http://bit.ly/ddfID9
It was maybe 10-12 inches in length. I sort of think I might know, but I'm not very sure.
