Pop psychology seems to have some utility here.
Isn't Feduccia an ornithologist, or a paleontologist
specializing in birds? In either case, he'd probably
not like the idea that his specialty is "just" a part
of dinosaur science. Perhaps he interprets
Ornithology as becoming more parochial in that case.
I don't mean this to be a personal attack, or an
attack at all, by the way. But it is a question I've
pondered myself -- it seems to be a very personal point.
