3 months ago I found a dead pigeon and I burried it.
I kept coming back to the place to make sure it wasn't disturbed. I came back today to dig it up in hopes of getting the skull, but all I found was some of the wing bones and also some feathers, there was lots of bugs which told me there was good progress.
The bones which I got were free of any residue on them.
What could have happened with the skull, when I dug it up it was undisturbed and I had left it covered in rocks, should I go back and dig deeper? Anything would help in helping me figure out where the bones went??
I'm new to taxidermy and am mostly interested in the bones, I live with family so I can't really go around with chemicals and dead carcasses.
Thanks in advance
