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.

THAT'S A LOON! My favorite noisy bird! Also I see that partridge down there, and I guess that's...an albatross, a condor, that's absolutely a kiwi, that must be a spoonbill or a near relative, that one has to be a Bird of Paradise, and also yay it's a penguin. And that tiny speckle-belly bird there is a sparrow. I have a plush one that sings. Her name is Jill...oh and i guess that white one is a duck, since the neck seems too short for a goose.

You want to know why humans always think chickens when it comes to dinosaurs ?

Firstly; the Media ! The first thing press do when entirely proven of dinosaurs & avians are the same thing (ie. Translational fossils) and feathered dinosaur fossils became much more abudant\common; the press used chickens & turkeys to 'spread' it !
They compare damn theropod to hens and wrote down dinosaurs were gigantic chickens ! Bad press is one of the first reasons.

Secondly; the education & research. Most people immediately think those abomination birds solely made to satisfy the hunger of enormous human populations; because none of them neither researched nor read what actually avians\birds are & how many variety they have. From the ashes of unintellience & laziness generally a wave called scale 'fanism - fanboy\fangirl' rises.

Thirdly; the movies & similar documentaries. I can write loongly why; but I rather take a shot cut & write all the corrupted movie genre simply chooses the 'Scaly Crocodile\Frog-Zillas' because they look more... ''Cool'' and attract more larger amount of people which immediately takes to fouth & last most 'important' reason.

The lack of publicity & presentation; this particular subject probably why there are so many '''confused''' people out there. The 'documentary magazines & channels' clearly do a terrible work when it comes to present these magnificent species.
The only 'serious' documentary channels are (maybe; 'were') the BBC & National Geographic; which they either look dinosaurs inaccurately scaly and solitary reptilian behemoths of past Or they made dinosaurs look inaccurately 'Odd'. They try to find a way between presenting animals both as depicted in past & both depicted as now.
The best documentaries about prehistoric life; especially dinosaurs come from BBC named 'planet dinosaur' (and another channel which seems untrusty but made a surprisingly 'decent' documentary named dinosaur revolution) who finally started to show dinosaurs are\were like real animals instead of Hollywood 'things'.... But; even those documentaries; aren't even being close to true or enough.


These are the main reasons. However there were many other 'smaller' reasons also be found.
[( Like it feels hard to some people to Let go the past )]


Anyway Amazing artwork ! :nod:

I think the issue is more with how feathered dinosaurs are reconstructed, not the idea of it. Almost every single feathered dinosaur picture I see makes them look like weird parrot-things.

Even chickens themselves aren't something to mess with if you are smaller than them. They'll eat just about anything you throw at them (even pieces of chicken).

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.

But ostriches are not predator material like many big theropods or dromaeosaurs.

But what about Struthiomimus, Oviraptor, or Therizinosaurus? Aren't they 'predator material' enough to be regarded as theropods?

The poster meant things like carnosaurs, tyrannosaurs, spinosaurs or dromaeosaurs. 

Ratites are a good model for ornithomimids (except Deinocheirus), but ratites aren't rpedators.

Dromaeosaurs have functional wings and use their talons to kill prey. Like eagles. Only difference being they are far more competent on ground.

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?

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.
