Check out Heilmann's 1914 or thereabouts illustration of _Compsognathus
longipes_, also reproduced in _The Origin of Birds_ (p.167). It looks very much
feathered from where I'm sitting. Moreover, Heilmann produced an interesting
illustration of two fighting Pro-aves (1916; this was when he was still
accept a cursorial and dinosaurian origin of birds) which look more like small
theropods than anything else. If anyone's interested, I can mail the picture
(although it's not of great quality).
