Velociraptor, or at least one of their descendants a Hermit Thrush, visiting our yard.
There is consensus among many scientists that today’s birds are dinosaurs. Fossil evidence points to the theropods, a family of three-toed predators that included Velociraptor mongoliensis and Tyrannosaurus rex as the evolutionary lineage. Theropods share hinged ankles, swivel-jointed wrists, wishbones, and forward-facing toes. with modern birds. Theropods were also feathered & not covered with reptilian scales. What theropods do not share with birds is flight. Their arms were too short & they did not have the spring-like breast bones needed to flap.
The exact evolutionary path(s) from theropods to birds is still being unraveled, but it is fun to watch our own little backyard Dinosaur Land.
