Re: Re-emergence of lost features.
but then storks (said to be related to =

Whoa! Hold up a bit. I suppose you are thinking about the idea that
cranes (Gruiformes) are ancestral to or related to diatrymids. Well,
first of all storks are in a different order of birds all together, the
Ciconiiformes. And second of all, Gastrornithiformes ( diatrymids : this
order may be "sunk" soon ) are related to ducks ( Anseriformes ) and are
united in the Anserimorphae. See my _Takahe and Diatrymia_ post.
