 Glorified Dinosaurs: The Origin and Early Evolution of Birds
Date: 04/12/2019
Time: 7:00:00 PM
Description:

"Glorified Dinosaurs: The Origin and Early Evolution of Birds” presented by Elliott Dabill. Everyone loves birds, and they reward our attention on walks with constant discoveries in variety and color.  This presentation will reveal some global findings of the last 20 years that promise to enrich what you know about birds: fossil finds that show feathers, fossils that connect birds to dinosaurs, and bird behavior and physiology that can now be explained through deep time.  We are in the Golden Age of dinosaur exposition, especially of the dinosaurs that are birds.
Elliott has been quite interested in dinosaurs for decades; he drove 5,000 miles to celebrate retirement from teaching high school biology to visit
Western U.S. dinosaur museums, for example.  The deeper you go into dinosaurs, the more that knowledge touches on other topics, as in a lecture he did recently on how global warming affected the dinosaurs; a lesson for us humans to fear.  He is the current president of Friends of the Arcata Marsh and has led tours there and all over Humboldt County, always looking for dinosaurs. Refreshments at 7 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, 251 Bayside Road, Arcata. Bring a mug for shade-grown coffee and come fragrance-free.
