All Those Pretty Birdies....

  It seems that lately, you can go to El Brete, or Las
Hoyas, or Sihetun, or some other lagerstatten, and
just find a new genus and species of bird. Or three.
Hou Lian-Hai has 5 to his credit for 1997 alone.

  Can those birdie-types out there supply me with
references for the following avians? Any help would be
appreciated most sincerely. Especially those newer
post-1990 discoveries in Dzharakhuduk and Liaoning....

  Dinosaurs are horrible, terrible creatures! Even the
  fluffy ones, the snuggle-up-at-night-with ones. You think
  they're fun and sweet, but watch out for that stray tail
  spike! Down, gaston, down, boy! No, not on top of Momma!
