Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Animalia - Kingdom containing multicellular organisms having cells bound by a plasma membrane and organized into tissue and specialized tissue systems that permit them to either move about in search of food or to draw food toward themselves. Unable to make their own food within themselves, as photosynthetic plants do, they rely on consuming preformed food. They possess a nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, enabling them to receive environmental stimuli and to respond with specialized movements.
  • Aves - The class of vertebrate animals that are typically bipedal and warm-blooded, lay large-yolked hardshelled eggs, often arboreal, and possessing feathers, hollow bones, forelimbs adapted for flight (although some have lost the ability to fly) and hindlimbs for perching and locomotion, a four-chambered heart, keen vision, a horny beak without teeth, and a large muscular stomach. Birds arose from theropod dinosaurs, which were an order of carnivorous dinosaurs.
  • bowls - Rounded, cuplike, hollow parts of objects, such as the body of a stemmed vessel or the part of a pipe in which tobacco is burned.
  • bowls - Rounded vessels that are generally wider than they are high, usually hemispherical or nearly so. A bowl may have a spreading base or foot ring and sometimes two handles or a cover. Distinguished from a cup, which is rather deep than wide.
  • Nasca
  • Peruvian - Of or belonging to the nation of Peru or its people.
  • Trochilidae - Members of a family containing about 320 species of small, often brightly colored birds native to the Americas. They have compact, strongly muscled bodies and rather long, bladelike wings that, unlike the wings of other birds, connect to the body only from the shoulder joint, allowing them to flap them very fast to hover in mid-air (creating a humming sound) and to fly straight up, down, sideways, and backwards; their bill is typically long and slender, adapted for securing nectar from certain types of flowers; some of the species represent the smallest living bird and are among the smallest of warm-blooded vertebrates.
