[Comments] (2) They Want The Crust From Your Sandwich: A bunch of old Audubon paintings (lithographs?) of birds at the online edition of Birds of America. Our vacation saw an insane amount of dinosaur-throwback behavior on the part of birds, though maybe we were just looking for it.

Also, continuing the trend of "museums try to get you to change your terminology", the Museum of the Rockies tried to get us to call birds "avian dinosaurs" and regular dinosaurs "non-avian dinosaurs". This may have made sense at one time but the time was 65 million years ago. If that terminology catches on, I demand to be referred to as a "mammalian cynodont", or "Roy Dalton Richardson Leonard Dalton Richardson".

Terrible flying lizards?

So what you really mean is that you saw non-avian-dinosaur-throwback behavior on the part of avian dinosaurs?
