Estimated weight of 0.8 to 1 kilogram (1.8 to 2.2 lb) Similar in shape to a European Magpie, with the largest individuals possibly attaining the size of a raven. a genus of early bird that is transitional between feathered dinosaurs and modern birds.

Archaeopteryx lived in the Late Jurassic period around 150.8–148.5 million years ago, in what is now southern Germany. its German name Urvogel ("original bird" or "first bird")

Archaeopteryx has more in common with other small Mesozoic dinosaurs than it does with modern birds.

. It was named from a feather in 1861. That same year, the first complete specimen of Archaeopteryx was announced. ver the years, ten more fossils so 11 fossils of Archaeopteryx have surfaced. Despite variation among these fossils, most experts regard all the remains that have been discovered as belonging to a single species, although this is still debated.

these fossils are evidence that the evolution of feathers began before the Late Jurassic.
