|THE BIRD BUILDING BOOK ~ Vol. 5
A Manual for Preparing Bird Skeletons with a Bone Identification Guide
|In a way, this is two manuals bound together. The first part
is the step by step instructions on preparing and articulating
a large bird skeleton with a section on a VERY large bird ~
ie., Big Bird ~ ie., an Emu. The skeleton used for illustration
is mostly an eagle skeleton but the techniques are the same
for anything the size of (or larger than) a chicken or a
raven--a good classroom project. The second part of the
manual is a detailed guide to the bones of a bird with
enough labeling and detail to be able to sort a pile of bird
bones into the skeletal elements, including which side of the
bird each bone came from. This is very helpful information
for zoo archaeology students who are working with bird
bones. (90 pages)
(Manuals are 8.5 X 11 inches, soft bound with spiral
