Our heron is grooming again. We had a discussion last night: do they have more bones in the neck than people? And what about giraffes?
Here is a lovely blog post about birds and bones and herons’ necks from 2013: http://rosy-finch.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-unfeathered-bird-review-and.html. Add that book to my wish list, it sounds both gorgeous and fascinating.
