Subject: [Tweeters] Reminder:  WOS Presentation, Mon. Nov. 1, The Birds Who Lived with (Other) Dinosaurs, with Kim Adelson
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”.  

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.
