ARE BIRDS ‘COUSINS’ TO REPTILES? NO.

ARE BIRDS ‘COUSINS’ TO REPTILES? NO.

Q:  Are today’s birds genealogical ‘cousins’ to today’s reptiles, due to a shared (evolutionary) ancestry?

Paintbrush Birds – Blue-footed Booby

The Blue-footed Booby is not what you might think of as a “Paintbrush Bird,” but I thought that the color of his feet qualifies him. :) Actually, these feet look more like he stepped into a bucket of paint, instead of a Paintbrush being used on them.
