"Seven dino-era feathers found perfectly preserved in  amber in western 
France highlight a crucial stage in feather evolution,  scientists report."
 
"The hundred-million-year-old plumage has features of both feather-like  
fibers found with some two-legged dinosaurs known as theropods and of modern  
bird 
feathers, the researchers said."
