First Feathered Dinosaur Fossils Found in North America
Take that China!

The discover that proves more my generations childhood visions wrong and encourages the truth. Our feathered friends are being discovered more and more; while I don't normally post new details, more feathered Dino finds makes me giddy.

No, there were tens of millions of years between these and humans.

Nice article.

But to me, it just looks like a big bird.
