    those 2 little holes are definately NOT eye sockets..
    no animals has its eyes on the top of its cranium..
    the eye sockets are gone.
    I think we are looking at the cranium and part of the lower skull.
    eye sockets and upper jaw arent there.
    it is not a complete upper skull.

    I have been trying to find something that has 2 small holes near the top of the skull! not coming up with anything that looks even remotely close..
    im still stumped!
    when you are looking at skull photos, keep in mind that we are dealing with a skull fragment..it has probably been much weathered by water.

    IMO, It could be something like this:

    can i see a pic straght from the back and one that shows the bottom holes better. it will give a better idea of how the skull articulates with the body which will help tell how much of hte skull is left.

    That can't be the nasal opening because it's not centered.

    the opening in the skullk are most likely holes that prevent the jaw muscles from exerting pressure on the braincase when chewing and related studfd with the jaw. The holes vary from none (turtele and their allies) to many. thats what i think it is
    that makes no logic

    I thought it might have been the sinuses that got broken off with all that rolling around in the ocean. you can even see it's not fully broken off. I had never heard of the holes you're talking about finch... could they be the sinuses too?
