Jurassic Lark: Why Birds Are Dinosaurs
From brooding behaviors to pneumatic bones, the similarities between modern birds and dinosaurs go well beyond feathers. In the last two years huge leaps in research and hundreds of new fossils continue to paint a picture of ancient birds that blurs the line between "avian" and "non-avian." Rachel will explain why dinosaurs still exist; they simply took to the sky.
Rachel Roth is the Great Plains Nature Center's resident bird nerd who got hooked on all things feathered while studying Wildlife & Fisheries Conservation Biology at K-State.
