The first time I saw dinosaurs flying—a lesson about learning something new

It's common knowledge that dinosaurs are extinct. That's the way things have been for the last sixty-five million years or so. Well, maybe most of the great beasts are gone. But the other day I think I saw about eight of them flying over the creek behind my house.

No, I didn't have a bad dream, and it wasn't a strange cloud formation passing by that just happened to look like a stampeding brontosaurus herd! The fact is, I had simply learned something I hadn't known before. I'll admit, though, that the new information was a bit of a surprise, and it has actually changed my outlook about a rather commonplace occurrence—bird watching.
