Bird calls brought Jurassic World's dinosaurs to life

The sounds of the charging Stegosaurus, the bloodthirsty Indominus rex, and the  screeching Pteranodon in Jurassic World were actually provided by their living descendants: birds.

A baby pelican, an angry osprey, a Harris hawk, a Gentoo penguin and an irate goose were among the birds that had voice-over parts in the film.

Listen to these sounds from the movie at Audubon: Birds in the News.

Happy Birding!
