Various bird calls were recorded to create the sounds of dinosaurs in the new “Jurassic World” movie that opened in June 2015. Calls used include those of a goose, baby pelican, penguins, osprey, terns, and kookaburra, among others. An interesting article with details about the recordings and their use in the movie is at: https://www.audubon.org/news/jurassic-worlds-dinosaurs-roar-life-thanks-bird-calls.

Thinking about dinosaurs peaks my imagination. It makes sense that bird calls were used to simulate dinosaur sounds, because scientists say that birds are directly descended from them. Fossils of more than 20 dinosaur species have been collected with preserved feathers. Modern birds closely resemble the embryos in ancient dinosaur eggs. “Jurassic World” is great summer fun – it is highly recommended!
