Which Came First: The Bird or the Bird Brain?

Several hundred people attend this public event. It is sponsored by AMNH, not me. Seating is very limited (maybe 100 seats?) and WE WILL NOT BE SITTING TOGETHER. Most people end up standing during the lecture - to get a seat, you'll need to arrive at AMNH no later than 6:30.

I will not be able to find you in the crowd. It is YOUR responsibility to find me, if you'd like, and introduce yourself. I will be standing toward the front of the auditorium on the right-hand side.

The actual lecture usually starts at around 7:00pm and goes until 8:00pm, then there is Q&A. There is a cash bar at the event.

SciCafe: Which Came First: The Bird or the Bird Brain?

New research provides evidence that dinosaurs evolved the brainpower necessary for flight well before they actually took to the air as birds. Join Museum paleontologist and curator Mark Norell and research associate Amy Balanoff, as they describe the cutting-edge research that continues to support the evolutionary link between dinosaurs and birds, showcasing their latest findings of iridescent feathers to skull comparisons.

    Dear Karen. Thank you for organising this event. I am sorry to have to withdraw, but my daughter and her fiancée have just arrived for a visit to New York, and time with them is very short. The benefit of course is that a space does open for somebody else. I am certain the lecture will be very interesting. With thanks and best regards, Hans

    Could we go out to dinner at Patsy's Pizza a few blocks away at the end (if we can find each other)?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
