791_PP_coracoidby Bernard K. Means, Project Director

Today’s object is a passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) coracoid.  As with yesterday’s post, this bone is from collections held by  the Virginia Museum of Natural History (VMNH).  Our team will be traveling to VMNH on Monday, January 6, 2014 to scan additional materials in their extensive faunal type collection.
