Further evidence -- bones, genetics, eggs, behavior, and more -- has shown a seamless transition from fleet-footed carnivores to the ancestors of modern birds.   The new species of dinosaur was identified from a fossil discovered by a farmer in the Hebei Province in northeastern China. Roughly the size of a crow, the creature lived roughly million years ago. Though pretty, its colors likely had a purpose.
