   I do not recall whether the bird _Liaonigornis_ showed feather traces,
but it is from the same locality as the feathered bird fossil
_Confusciusornis sanctus_ and the feathered dinosaur fossil _Sinosauropteryx

   _Sinosauropteryx_ was located in late 1996.  Don't know about _L._ and
_C._ off the top of my head.
