3D reconstructions of the telencephalon (transparent), nucleus basorostralis (green), striatopallidal complex (blue) and the hyperpallium (red) in six species of birds. Models are shown in a lateral view in the top half of the panel and in a rostral view in the bottom half. Models are shown for North Island brown kiwi (Apteryx mantelli), bar-tailed godwit (Limosa lapponica), Eurasian woodcock (Scolopax rusticola), South Island oystercatcher (Haematopus finschi), black-winged stilt (Himantopus himantopus), and masked lapwing (Vanellus miles).
