    • 2 Pages

    There is a strong amount of evidence in science to suggest that birds evolved from small theropod dinosaurs. To start on a common ground, natural selection must be understood. This is the process by which genetic mutations that enhances reproduction become and repeat more often in later generations (adapting them), eventually leading to evolutionary change. Since animals produce too many offspring, competition in the environment levels things out, creating a change in generations through favoring

    The transition between theropod dinosaur and bird is exquisitely documented in the fossil record and it is now widely accepted that birds are descended from theropod dinosaurs.

    it just does: the bird’s nest. Nestled in a corner under my deck, there it sat. Frayed pieces of straw poking out like arrows announcing I’m here, sucka, and there’s nothing you can do about it. That summer that mother bird roosting on its nest gave me the dirtiest looks a bird can muster and made me uncomfortable in my own backyard. Opening the door to the yard, I would slowly peer around the side to her corner, like a thief, and upon spotting her beady eyes staring back at me, I’d cautiously tiptoe
