Brown Pelicans – Fishing, Flying Wonders

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 0 comments

The Jones family was crossing Galveston Bay by Galveston, Texas on the car ferry. They had left their car on the parking deck and climbed the stairs to the observation deck. “Mom and Dad! Look!” Billy pointed and shouted. “A big bird just crashed into the water!” “It didn’t crash, Billy,” laughed his mother, Mrs. Jones. “That is a Brown Pelican, and it is fishing. Watch … it just tipped its beak up and swallowed a fish.” “You mean he caught a fish?” asked Billy. “Yes,...

A Day On The Beach

Posted on Dec 20, 2013 in Kid's Think & Believe Too! | 0 comments

The Jones family had been enjoying a wonderful vacation at Fort Myers Beach on the coast of Florida. That morning they had driven to one end of the island to visit Lovers Key State Park. They had hiked some of the trails around the inner islands and bays and seen some wonderful wildlife – an osprey catching a fish, another osprey eating a fish, many snowy egrets wading in water looking for fish to eat, and a roseate spoonbill feeding in the mud flats. Billy and Mary really...

Birds’ Breathtaking System

Posted on Feb 20, 2013 in Articles | 0 comments

In a previous issue of Think & Believe (Vol.2, No. 5), we discussed the unique features relating to flight in birds, including positioning and control of feathers, size and structure of bones, and efficiency of the circulatory and digestive systems.  In this article we consider the amazing respiratory system, which, according to Dr. Michael Denton “seem(s) to defy plausible evolutionary explanations.” (Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, p. 210) Most vertebrates draw air...

Dinosaur To Bird?

Posted on May 18, 2012 in Articles | 0 comments

In Genesis 1:20-23 we discover that God created birds on day 5 of Creation, and land animals on day 6 (Genesis 1:24-25, 31).  Dinosaurs walked upon the land, so they were created on day 6. Today, many evolutionary scientists believe dinosaurs are the great-great-great-grandparents of modern day birds.  Lately, some scientists say they have found “feathers” on a few dinosaurs called theropods, the group of dinosaurs that includes Tyrannosaurus rex.  They believe that this is...

Feathers From Scales??

Posted on Apr 29, 2011 in Articles |

A Gary Larson cartoon depicts a meeting of several dinosaurs discussing their ultimate fate – extinction.  The caption say; “Wings, feathers, nests?  A crazy idea, but it just might work!”  It certainly does sound like a crazy idea, but several science centers we visited lately have actually made the statement that dinosaurs are still with us – they “merely” evolved into birds.  So, somehow, legs must have developed into wings and scales into feathers.  Let’s take a close...

Birds in Flight

Posted on Apr 14, 2011 in Articles | 0 comments

Flying birds are compact, well-integrated flying machines capable of producing the large amounts of energy necessary for flight.  Their powerful wings are properly shaped to utilize the physical principles of moving air.  In addition, the wing size and shape varies with species, according to the size of the bird and its speed and type of flight.  In fact, birds can often be identified by their characteristic flight pattern. The feathers of a bird serve to streamline the...
