Comparative Bird Skull Set of 5
BC-331-BIRD-SET5 $459.00

All bird species have beaks that are uniquely adapted to acquire, handle and consume particular foods available in their environment. This comparative set features skulls from birds with beaks specialized for consuming different types of food, including seeds and nuts, nectar, insects and other small animals. The northern cardinal has a short, conical beak with a wide base used for cracking seeds and nuts. The carnivorous red-tailed hawk has a strong beak with a curved upper portion that comes to a sharp point, designed for catching live prey and tearing flesh. The ruby-throated humming bird has a long needle-like beak, specialized for reaching nectar inside of flowers. The pileated woodpecker has a pointed, chisel shaped beak, specialized for making holes in bark to reach insects inside. The omnivorous American crow has a long sharp beak used to consume a variety of foods such as fruit, insects, seeds and other small animals. All of these birds are native to the Americas and are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 (protection against hunting, capturing, selling or killing migratory birds). This set would be a great addition to any biology, zoology or paleontology program studying comparative bird skull anatomy.
