Last week this question was posed:

Does anyone remember the three extinct birds that were mentioned in the
Biology 101 Guidebook?

The first answer is: The Dodo bird
Good job P.J.K.!

The Dodo bird was first recorded by Portuguese sailors in 1507 
but was found to be extinct within 100 years.

The second answer is: The Passenger Pigeon

Two hundred years ago the Passenger Pigeon 
was thought to be the most populated bird! 
They were hunted to extinction by 1900.
 The last Passenger Pigeon known to be alive, Martha, 
died in captivity in 1914 and is now on display 
at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

The third answer is : The Archaeopteryx

The Archaeopteryx is about the size of a crow, 
had scales on its legs, and had teeth and feathers!

Just a word of encouragement. My family and I are looking forward to purchasing a copy of Physics 101 sometime next year.

Your videos are first class! And, well worth the wait.
