Dr. Grant leaves the dining table with a treat for a non-prehistoric bird. He approaches the cage and extends the treat, trying to get the bird to say his name. The bird just stares at him through the bars, never atte mpting to eat the treat or say his name! A trainer placed the cage on the set and then placed the bird on the perch inside. The trainer stood behind the actor and used hand signals to get the bird to sit on the perch and look at the actor. The treat was given to the bird when the scene was over.
