Feathered Dinosaurs

  1. Feathered Dinosaurs (Science Service - Monastersky)
      Provides pictures and a description of dinosaurs with feathers or feather-like coverings, possibly linking them to birds of today. Sinosauropteryx prima, Caudipteryx zoui, Confuciusornis, and Protarchaeopteryx robusta were feathered dinosaurs, whereas Archaeopteryx was the oldest known bird.

  2. Feathered Find Could Rewrite Dinosaur History (Christian Science Monitor)
      "Scientists in China report that they have unearthed the fossil remains of a small plant-eating dinosaur that sports what appears to be a primitive form of feather."

  3. Study: Ancient Bird Had Four Wings (MSNBC News)
      "The earliest known bird had flight feathers on its legs that allowed it to use its hindlimbs as an extra pair of wings, a new study finds."

      " 'The idea that a multi-winged Archaeopteryx has been around for more than a century, but it has received little attention,' Longrich said. 'I believe one reason for this is that people tend to see what they want or expect to see. Everybody knows that birds don't have four wings, so we overlooked them even when they were right under our noses.' " 09-06
