Confuciusornis - Look Ma, no tail! The many complete feathered specimens lack
a well developed array of tail feathers (not to be confused with the hyper-
long pair of display feathers found on some specimens). The wings are large,
so this bird could fly, but not with much agility. 
Anybody - hypotheses on the habits of this critter?
Yeah. A lot of brooding, a little flapping.
