Dino Bird

By Laura Doering
Join in on Laura's fun and experiences of bird ownership, and share in her adventures as the editor of BIRD TALK, the world’s most widely read pet bird magazine, in Wayward Feathers.

Just when one set of researchers say birds and dinosaurs are not related, along comes Psittacosaurus gobiensis ("parrot reptile of the Gobi"); the world's first known nut-eating dinosaur.

I’ll just go ahead and call it “Dino Bird.”

After seeing a hyacinth effortlessly crack open a macadamia nut, I can’t help but be in awe of the macaw’s amazing beak. I can only imagine the powerful crunch a 3-foot-long Dino Bird could manage with its beak. That would definitely give new meaning to the big, bad bite. And I can’t help but imagine these Dino Birds cracking nuts the size of coconuts … perhaps that’s the next find: Jurassic nuts.
