distinguished birds

Birds’s (Crow/Raven) theory - RWBY

According to this image we’ll found crow/raven apparition in Rwby  : Notice - it’s difficult to distinguish the two birds because the model are not detailed. I did my supposition with reflection.

the first Apparition of a bird : Yellow trailer.  It must be a raven.

Second Apparition of a bird -  Vol3 chapt3 When Qrow is against Winter

Vol3 chapter 12, it could be Raven.

Vol3 chapter 12 It’s clearly Qrow

Rwby volume 4 opening when we see the team RNJR

Rwby vol ¾ openings - Who knows ? It must be Raven 

volume 4 chapter 4

When the bird takes flight Qrow said “Luck” as he did it ironically. In the vol4 ep 8 Qrow’s semblance is the misfortune (watch this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se-BvtKgkNI). According to the Branwen’s symbol, Qrow is the left, Raven the right. The left is the bad side, so the right is the “Luck side”. That why Raven is arrived in the good timing Yang in the vol 2 and Qrow is arrived too late when he wanted to save Amber in the vol 3. But he reckoned with Ironwood(vol4 chapt 11) and Ruby (vol 4 chapt 7). 

Plus the lyrics in the Qrow’s theme : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTVPiwJWDuA vol4- chapter 7
Pain Is your reward for being near me
Fate
Won’t be your friend when I’m around
Fade
Before the tragedy that follows
Flee 
The situations I surround
I’m a hole in light
I cannot lie
I will change the karma of your life
I don’t mean to bring you pain
But I will, just wait, I can’t explain.
I am no one’s blessing
I’ll just bring you harm
I’m a cursed black cat I’m an albatross
I’m a mirror broken
Save yourself I’m your bad luck charm

Sorry for the long post and my bad English.

'Dino-chickens' reveal how the beak was born
Chicken embryos have been altered so that the birds grow dinosaur-like snouts.

Biologists have created chicken embryos with dinosaur-like faces by tinkering with the molecules that build the birds’ beaks.

The research, details of which are published today in Evolution1, does not aim to engineer flocks of hybrid ‘dino-chickens’ or to resurrect dinosaurs, says Bhart-Anjan Bhullar, a palaeontologist now at the University of Chicago in Illinois, who co-led the work. “We’re never going back to the actual dino-chicken or whatever it is.” Rather, he says, the team wants to determine how snouts might have turned into beaks as dinosaurs evolved into birds more than 150 million years ago.

The transition from dinosaur to bird was messy — no specific anatomical features distinguished the first birds from their meat-eating dinosaur ancestors. But in the early stages of bird evolution, the twin bones that formed the snout in dinosaurs and reptiles — called the premaxilla — grew longer and joined together to produce what is now the beak. “Instead of two little bones on the sides of snout, like all other vertebrates, it was fused into a single structure,” Bhullar says.

Through the Portal; closed rp w/heirofthedark

Everything was white and silent for a moment. It was just blank. Oblivion. For a moment.

Then reality came crashing down in a wave of colors and sounds. Nothing seemed to make sense. It was an attack on all senses as explosions shattered the silence. Colors spun around in a messy fashion, warping and blending together until finally settling in some predetermined pattern. The thunderous noises from before had dulled down, now only background noise.

Shapes began pulling together, forming trees and greenery. The noises were now distinguishable; birds chirping and small animals rustling the bushes. The world had put itself back together in the form of a forest. Beneath one of the tall oaks were two figures laying still. One was a hedgehog, black as night, with his arms wrapped around a sleeping brown wolf.

A sparrow fluttered down from the tree above and perched on one of the hedgehog’s quills.

On the eleventh Day of Taxonomy

My true love sent to me

A wooden bird from Papua New Guinea!

In the 1920s, evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr took part in a series of Museum expeditions to study animal life in the South Pacific. While collecting specimens in New Guinea, he noted that the “folk taxonomy” of the local people corresponded almost exactly with Western scientific classifications: “These superb woodsmen had 136 names for the 137 species of birds I distinguished (confusing only two nondescript species of warblers.)” Today, Museum researchers still record local animals’ names while in the field to record local animal names. On the recent Explore21 Papua New Guinea expedition, Curator Chris Raxworthy found that the “Tok Ples” (local language) recognized 36 different frog species.

Vernacular systems of taxonomy are in use all over the world, and the influential scientist Stephen Jay Gould argued that their existence was evidence for real units in nature.
