The Washington Ornithological Society is delighted to invite you to an illuminating presentation by Kim Adelson on
November 1, entitled “The Birds Who Lived With (Other) Dinosaurs.
This talk is a continuation of Kim’s presentation to WOS last February of “The Dinosaurs Amongst Us”. Kim promises you
won’t get lost if you missed the first talk. (However, note that a recording of that talk is available on the WOS YouTube
The focus of this talk will be on the birds who lived during the age of dinosaurs. Although most people imagine that birds
first appeared as the “classic” dinosaurs were dying off, this is not true. Birds – true birds, but significantly different from
today’s species – first appeared about 160 million years ago and co-existed with non-avian dinosaurs for almost 100 million
years. Kim will discuss the features that characterized the very first birds and talk about the three main types of birds that
dominated the landscape in the latter half of the dinosaur era. She will also try to give us a sense of the diversity of early
birds and the breadth of the ecological niches they filled. Finally, she will talk about which modern, extant orders of birds
were alive back then, walking alongside other dinosaurs. You won’t want to miss this talk.
