Dinosaurs and birds



Dinosaurs are from the birds

Although many people believe reptiles evolved from dinosaurs, there is new evidence that dinosaurs are related to birds. Yes, feathers and all! Chances are good that you probably will not find any news about living dinosaurs in the St. Petersburg Times, but you may find news about birds. Birds are an important part of our lives. Most people eat poultry (and bird eggs). Some people keep birds as pets. Monitor the St. Petersburg Times e-Edition for a couple of weeks to see if you can find a story about birds. You can use the e-mail notification feature to be alerted any time the word “bird” appears in the news. Share the main ideas of the stories you find here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
