<< The main reason that Protarchaeopteryx is called a bird, is because in the
 only available publication, Ji & Ji (1997) refer to it as a bird. The
 specimen in the Bejing museum is casually refered to as a bird. This is due
 in large part to the presence of feather impressions.
   In the discription (in Chinese) they assign it to the Archaeopterygiformes
 Furbringer, 1888.
   There are, at present, no discriptions in the English literture.

Again: Check out the photo of the specimen in the Feb 1998 Scientific
American.
