Bird with head turned back sculpture from The Old Route 66 Zoo near Joplin, Missouri, places this motif seen in Lower Paleolithic Europe at yet another North American location

Bird with head turned back, "sleeping duck motif" or maybe a preening bird here. From The Old Route 66 Zoo site, #23JP1222. Find by Stacy Dodd and Rod Weber. The sculpture is worked around a hole through the stone which serves to define the bird's neck and head.
