Well Preserved young bird fossils with exceptional details found in Burmese amber

Researchers have found fossils of young bird with remarkable details locked in Burmese amber. The Burmese amber has managed to well preserve fossils with most of skull and neck. The fossil also includes a partial wing, claws, soft tissue of the tail and hindlimbs. The research team reported that fossils belong to juvenile enantiornithine birds. The bird could be just a few days old when it got trapped in amber. Complete details of the research team findings have been published in the journal Gondwana Research.
