A heron may not look like a dinosaur, but striking similarities exist between birds and dinosaurs. In recent years new evidence has confirmed the link between them. Dinosaur fossils have been found that prove some species had distinctly birdlike features, and bird fossils have shown that the earliest birds had dinosaurlike attributes, too. Paleontologists think that a particular group of dinosaurs evolved into the thousands of bird species that exist today. Though we will never see a living dinosaur, we can see their descendants in the skies above us.
