Leave us not forget that fringe group who regard dinosaurs as birds, because 
dinosaurs fall into the stem group of all animals more closely related to 
modern birds than to modern crocodiles, which are modern birds' closest 
relatives. This is, of course, the most interesting and the historically 
earliest way of conceiving of bird-dinosaur relationships.
