"As roses might in magic amber laid"

It has feathers and looks like a birds tail. Why do they think its not a bird?

Ancient One, entombed with now forgotten scenes,
your life-relatives with nonhuman means,
with no apologies, we now you disinter,
trying to decode what you truly were,
Golden amber seals some of your last remains,
and raindrops fall weeping as our own time wanes.
