Re: Arboreal? Flying?

Archy, Patagopteryx, Iberomesornis, and Ichthyornis are birds, and I'm
pretty sure all of them could fly.

Compsognathus could have been arboreal; it's certainly small enough.

Procompsognathus -- is that even a valid taxon anymore?

The other genera you list are too big to be habitually arboreal,
especially in a world where the most common trees didn't have climbable
