One point that, to me anyway, seems to be constantly overlooked when it
comes to Protoavis, is that Chatterjee has to demonstrate that at least one
of the bones in Protoavis is genuinely avian and he wins this debate about
whether or not there were Triassic avian dinosaurs. I for one beleive that
the whole of Protoavis is a chimera, including lepidosaur, non-avian
dinosaur, and possibly avian dinosaur remains. AFAIK, he has not done that.
All I have seen of Protoavis are the pictures from his book, The Rise of
Birds, and I, admittedly, am not knowledgeable enough (yet) to tell exactly
what he has there amoung the bone fragments he has collected.
