    Article in today's NYT about a chicken-sized dinosaur fossil find that is shaking up how bird evolution took place.

    Go out and hug your mini-dinos! [​IMG]

    Always count on China for that. . . . . China always has the feathered ones, whether they be closer to modern birds or not. [​IMG] In fact China is where we found some of the first dinosaurs that had enough feather to give us clues on color. (based on the chemicals in the feathers)
