What did oviraptorids eat?

At <www.amnh.org/exhibitions/fightingdinos/faq.html>, you can find the
answer.  I quote: "The bones of a small lizard were found near the
stomach of an _Oviraptor philoceratops_, and as lizards make up the
diets of a number of birds, it's likely that it was this birdlike
dinosaur's last meal."
