Short Entry Monday

There is not much in the way of videos for Presbyornis, but there is an interesting image from Witmer's lab at Ohio University which compares the olfactory sections of some brains, one being Presbyornis which is pretty interesting and so, without much in the movie category today, I will certainly share that one around.
As you can see in the clip the olfactory senses of Presbyornis actually have a fairly spacious are of the brain available to them, which most of us probably would not associate with ducks, however, if they did not have an area as small as a pigeon's they certainly must have still been using it and needed it.
