Paleontologists from the University of Calgary and the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology have announced the discovery of the first ever evidence of feathered dinosaurs discovered in the Western Hemisphere. Until now, all previous feathered dinosaur evidence has come from fine silt lagoon and lake deposits found in Germany and China. The remarkable Canadian fossils come from 75 million year-old river deposits found in the badlands of Alberta. The feathered remains belong to a type of dinosaur known as ornithomimid, or bird-mimic (apropos - yes?). News of the discovery is reported at the online journal Phys.org.
