All Those Pretty Birdies....



  It seems that lately, you can go to El Brete, or Las
Hoyas, or Sihetun, or some other lagerstatten, and
just find a new genus and species of bird. Or three.
Hou Lian-Hai has 5 to his credit for 1997 alone.

  Can those birdie-types out there supply me with
references for the following avians? Any help would be
appreciated most sincerely. Especially those newer
post-1990 discoveries in Dzharakhuduk and Liaoning....

  *Boluochia*         Zhou, 1995
  *Cathayornis*       Zhou, Jin, and Zhang, 1992
  *Chaoyangia*        Hou and Zhang, 1993
  *Concornis*         Sanz and Buscalioni, 1992
  *Cuspirostriornis*  Hou, 1997
  *Eoenantiornis*     Hou, Martin, Zhou, and Feduccia,
                      1999
  *Gurilynia*         Kurochkin, 1999
  *Horezmavis*        Nessov and Borkin, 1983
  *Iberomesornis*     Sanz and Bonaparte, 1992
  *Judinornis*        Nessov and Borkin, 1983
  *Kuszholia*         Nessov, 1992
  *Kyzylkumavis*      Nessov, 1984
  *Liaoningornis*     Hou, 1997
  *Liaoxiornis*       Hou and Chen, 1999
  *Longchengornis*    Hou, 1997
  *Longirostriornis*  Hou, 1997
  *Otogornis*         Hou, 1994
  *Songlingornis*     Hou, 1997
  *Zhyraornis*        Nessov, 1984

  Also the reference for the multiple species of
*Confuciusornis*? (But not *C. sanctus* [got that] or
*Changchengornis*.)

  Thanks in advance,

  Dinosaurs are horrible, terrible creatures! Even the
  fluffy ones, the snuggle-up-at-night-with ones. You think
  they're fun and sweet, but watch out for that stray tail
  spike! Down, gaston, down, boy! No, not on top of Momma!
