The ROM is putting the skeleton of a Great Blue Heron -- in a
spread-winged pose -- next to the skeleton of a dromeosaur, as a
comparison, in one of the new exhibits the renovation is producing.
Based on the fairly large picture of the newly mounted -- still sitting
on a block of styrofoam! -- heron, it's got the same smooth-spools neck
the flamingo picture had.

Thought you might find this interesting.
