Ancient Bird Found Stuck in Amber

The incredibly well-preserved remains of a 100-million-year-old baby  bird encased in amber is being heralded by scientists as best glimpse  yet of an ancient avian species.

The remarkable specimen, discovered in Myanmar, contains nearly the  entire body of the creature that is believed to have met its sticky  demise after hatching only a few days earlier.

Researchers say that the creature is a type of bird that no longer  exists on Earth, but co-existed with the ancestors of today's feathered  denizens of the planet.
