Bringing this all back to Archie and his eastern buddy,
Confucious-birdy...  How likely would it have been for a piscivorous,
diving-and-swimming-by-flapping small dinosaur-bird to coexist with
these other guys in their lagoons?  Would any of the smaller
pterasaurs have fit into the
niches?  Were any of the pterasaurs or dino-birdies web-footed, that
we know of?
