Are you a birdwatcher? Or perhaps at least a frequent bird seer? It is hard to avoid them: pigeons, seagulls, robins, and of course, the chicken. Even if you stay in your house all day, you might catch a glimpse of Big Bird on your public television.
But what is the origin of these feathery friends, biologically speaking? Who are their closest relatives? Why the lizardy-feet? This zine For the Birds explores these questions and includes some information on bird-like creatures of the past like Archaeopteryx and Pterodactyls.
It turns out, that looking at the biochemistry of T. rex tells us something about where birds came from - confirming what was already pretty well known: the dinosaur connection! Evolution is an incredible force for sure...
