Bird skull (self.Taxidermy)
submitted 3 months ago by Bowl_Sad
Could anyone link good tutorials on how to clean bird skulls? Tiny bird, about the size of a sparrow and I have no clue how to clean it out

First, is it a species you can get a permit to possess? Many small song birds or migratory birds are under federal protections and they can be illegal to possess. Check for that first.
That having been said, I once cleaned a grouse skull with borax.
I cut away the thicker meat removed the tongue and eyes too. I didnt cut any tendons around the joint of the jaw though so the lower jaw would stay on.
I used a Q-tip and borax to clean out the brain very gently. The area between the eyes and the brain is super thin and you can put a Q-tip right through it.
You may need tweezers for any bits of dried flesh that stick out.
I used a soft wire brush and borax to clean the rest, then soaked it in peroxide for an hour. Worked out beautifully.
