Part of a bird's breast bone. Not having a 'brystkam' means the bird cannot fly, apparently.
Any ideas?

agree  Charles Ek: Exactly: "Brystbenet er stort og skjoldformet og forsynet med en høj midtkam, hvortil vingemusklerne er fæstnede; denne såkaldte brystkam er hos ikke-flyvende fugle, f.eks. strudse, svagt udviklet eller mangler." http://tinyurl.com/3tg6qv3
