    A newly discovered fossil bird, Gansus, from Gansu province in China, is around 110 million years old; rather like a diver (loon), perhaps suggests ancestors of today’s birds were waterbirds.
    [Or, was their habitat more conducive to fossilisation? Waterbirds from small running dinosaurs would seem a jump.]
    Loon-like ancient bird might be modern duck’s ancestor
