Here is an avian coracoid that I found on the beach in South Carolina. It is from an unidentified off-shore formation that regularly deposits Pleistocene fossils on the shore. I am hoping that someone @Auspex can ID it to genus perhaps. Thanks for looking.
I found this fossil bird bone recently while fossil collecting along Calvert Cliffs (Maryland Miocene). I collected the bone directly from the fossil layer it was in. I believe it is a Metacarpal bone from the wing region. Fairly small measuring at approximately 13/16ths of an inch long. Can't believe the thin section stayed intact while sifting in my screen. Any ideas as to species would be appreciated. Daryl.
