Well, that about makes my day. Now why would they have considered using 
a bird call ? Godzilla was filmed 'way before Bakker and Assoc. 
theorized re: the similarities between birds and dinosaurs. And G-zilla 
is certainly far from being a "correct" dino, by current standards anyway.

Keeping somewhat on Snd-related topics: Have you ever heard the sound of 
a hadrosaur ? Apparently some clever fellows cast a hadrosaur's skull, 
complete with sound chambers (? if that's what they were), and have made 
some recordings of what may have been a hadrosaur's call. Kind of a 
big-voice hooting...
