Great Transitions: Dinosaur to Bird


#1

Another fantastic coursera online course is coming up!

Theropod Dinosaurs and the Origin of Birds

The course starts on August 16 and was created by the University of Alberta. It’s only 5 weeks long, and the presenters are fantastic. You’ll get to see lots of fossils and some stunning art work. It starts with a lecture on bird anatomy, and the presenter has a parrot on his arm!

Here’s a video preview
