Hello ZOOARCHERS!

I have posted several photos on Flickr, of (what I think is) a bird distal tibiotarsus (left?). Any ideas on the species? The context, albeit not a 100% safe one, is most likely Assyrian in chronology and it comes from northern Iraq (Kurdistan).

In some of the photos there are also other fragments of bird(?) long bones with the tibiotarsus (one of them at least most probably belongs to it). 

If you have any ideas on the species/family please do not hesitate to let me know, there you go:

The above is the link to the set of photos. You should press 'next' to see them all.

Thank you very much in advance,

Angelos Hadjikoumis
