Pneumatic Bones In Birds

Pneumatic bones in birds are hollow. This helps to shed unnecessary weight that may hamper with the flight dynamics. The hollow spaces are filled with air, which provides structural rigidity as well as significantly reduced weight. Humans too have pneumatized bones in the skull, such as the sinus cavities in the frontal area.
