Sherlock Solves Skull Stumper- See Subsequent Summary
Faithful reader Andy solved the skull mystery (well, mostly- he kind of hedged his answer but I'll give it to him anyway.) Poor Yorick was a Wild Turkey. As I mentioned, I found the skeletal remains among scattered feathers in a brushy woodlot at Bonny Reservoir in eastern Colorado. I especially like skulls- I recommend skullsite.com as a fantastic reference for bird skulls and skeletons, although they don't have a Wild Turkey there!! If you want to compare another complete Wild Turkey skull, link over here.
