Birds Are My Favourite Dinosaurs

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I love birds: watching them, taking photos, creating digital & tactile interpretations of our flying feathered friends… Birdwatching/photography is literally my go-to comfort/de-stress activity – whether out my front window or out in Nature. Indeed, birdwatching is my happy place.

I am immensely curious about all things birds and mildly obsessed with the idea of the connection of birds to their long-passed kin (the dinosaurs). I am here to tell you that birds are indeed my favourite dinosaurs (for the record, Triceratops was my favourite when I was a kid).

Think about it… have you never looked at a bird’s leg and feet? Or set eyes upon a cassowary?
