Whale Bones in Haversham, RI

I discovered a whale skeleton on the beach in Haversham, RI last week.  The location was approximately here https://goo.gl/maps/6ukvbupFAvr.  I’m not sure what type of whale it was, but based on looking at pictures of complete whale skeletons, I am fairly sure it was indeed a whale. I estimate:

The Orca Bone Atlas gives some clues about what specific bones I dug up.

I would have dug more, but I kept unearthing more disgusting bits of decomposing whale.

Please send an email to nattaylor@gmail.com if you have any clues about how to identify what type of whale it is.
