Cornish Pixie Skeleton

Are fairies real?  Despite the efforts of fey deniers the case for their existence is overwhelming.  Now Dan Baines at Lebanon Circle Magic brings us what may be the final, undeniable piece of evidence the skeptics have long demanded- an actual pixie skeleton.
The series of images show a miniature partial human skeleton. The skull, spine and ribs are present although the limbs, lower jaw and pelvis are missing. A five pence piece is also present in the images to give an indication of scale. If these are genuine then this is the smallest humanoid remains ever discovered, but how did they appear in a falcon nest?

The mysterious man who sent in the images works for a birds of prey rescue centre in Cornwall. As well as caring for sick and injured birds part of this gentleman’s job is to monitor nests of protected species for annual breeding numbers as well as preventing eggs from being stolen by collectors. During a routine check he climbed a tall tree to inspect the nest when something amongst the twigs and feathers caught his eye.

The delicacy of the bones is nothing short of amazing.

@ Phil

I suspect the body is an actual animal skeleton, while the skull has been painted to match.
