Where does bird blood come from?


Recommended Posts

This seemed like the most likely place to ask a question about bird anatomy. So here's my question.

 

If birds have hallow bones and blood cells are created in the bone marrow. Then; Where do birds manufacture thier blood cells at? thank you all.

When I was in the 8th standard, I remember reading something like there is an air pocket associated with the respiratory system of birds that allow it to breath more efficiently and when filled with air, it takes the space between the bones.

 

Now what is that air pocket, I don't understand and neither do I remember the details.

Probably someone here can explain this.
