Female Cardinal

Victor brought Noor a dead cardinal as a gift, so she finally got to try her hand at cleaning a skeleton. First, she cut of it's head. Then, she removed the brain via the ocular cavity. She scraped off as much of the feathers as she could and boiled the skull until she was able to scrape the rest. Once dry, she'll soak it in hydrogen peroxide for a few days.
