Another PSA Addendum by babbletrish Another PSA Addendum by babbletrish
The "Warning" is because of some swearing. Yes, this legitimately bothers me, and hopefully I'm not alone.  Meanwhile, have some footage of Golden Eagles being bada** to an unfortunate buttrock soundtrack.

EDIT: Note that I don't mean to pick on free-range or lovingly raised backyard chickens, just the ones that are -shudder- "mass produced". If there was room, I'd have a wild Junglefowl in among the big group of birds.

Sad that people tend to think of birds as all chickens. They'll even think it's cannibalism for birds to eat other birds.

If the kid from Jurassic Park were to try the "it's just some big turkey" crap on me, I wouldn't have scared him into logic with talking about the raptors. I would have told him about the horror that is the wild turkey. 

Wild turkey might actually be a good fit for potential dinosaur personalities...maybe swans and other waterfowl. 


It's amazing how horrifying they are when you actually take the time to learn, then apply it to dinosaurs. It's glorious.

I would obviously think that ostriches, emus and rheas closely resemble dinosaurs rather than eagles. They have long necks, shovel beaks and long legs; and I believe that a Gallimimus might have definitely behaved like an ostrich.

Hell yeah, eagles are awesome. Bears? Run away from them. Honey badgers? Fricking terrified.

back in my days, sauropods dragged their tails, stegosaurus had TWO BRAINS, and iguanodon was shaped like an ACTUAL iguana! Thanks for ruining my childhood FOREVER, science!


yes, my childhood was pretty shitty

THANK YOU. Considering there are more species of birds (*Vegeta voice*OVER 9000!!!...just about 10,000) than there are of mammals (around 5500), it drives me INSANE when people qualify all birds as the same.

I get so irked when people say I'm making my starling a cannibal when I feed him chicken ~>:E

Also, "She just took that out of a deer!" made my day XD

Just recently, over hot dogs at a family gathering, I had the following surreal exchange:

Aunt - "I've had this hawk in my backyard just LOOKING at my chipmunks!"

Me - "Well, if it bothers you, you should move your bird feeder or even take it in for a while and..."

Aunt - "Oh my GAWD, hawks eat OTHER BIRDS?!?!?"

Me - (Incredulous stare.) "Don't be shocked, but you should know that you're eating other mammals right now."

"So why is it that a depressing number of people immediately think of this thing whenever the subject of birds, feathers, and feathered dinosaurs comes up?!?"

I (at least partly) blame ignorant animators: [link]

"This here is a Golden Eagle. Possibly the most awesome animal around today, pound for pound."

I concur. Eagles in general & goldens in particular are my favorite living dinos. It's like Bodio said: "Think flying Velociraptors" ( [link] ).

BTW, what's that thing inbtwn the vulture & the albatross?

I agree with you! And I think that sometimes people don't notice the variety of birds around us...
Anyway can you tell me what kind of bird is the black with white spots on the last scene? I have never seen it!

Personally, looking back at the old scaly raptors, I find them rather bland looking compared to the newer restorations of them with feathers.

Agree wholeheartedly. I vividly remember finding _Predatory Dinosaurs of the World_ for the first time and being blown away because it was the first time I'd ever seen anyone draw maniraptors that looked like actual animals that actually lived in this actual world.
