We all know that dinosaurs were reptiles. Some dinosaurs had feathers but they were not able to fly. Gradually, evolution occured and these feathered reptiles changed to birds. Birds, for that matter can fly. It means the feathers which were mostly functionless in the dinosaurs gained utmost importance in birds and gave them the ability to fly.
