Archaeopteryx Muet Have Been a Re

Today the birds are all quite differ

first bird that was ever seen on earth
was called the Archaeopteryx, which

walk and perch In the trees. It also
had two other limbs like hands, which
It probubly used to climb about the

In time nature changes all things,
and so she did the birds.
