I *think* that this quote comes from my interview with Dr. Bakker.  Anyway, 
these tracks were discussed recently on the list.  I don't recall exactly when, 
but I would search the archives.  I do think that the "feathers" were actually 
fronds or leaves, or some vegetation.  I don't recall exactly.  I think that 
they were found somewhere in New England, and are in the Pratt Museum's 
Hitchcock Collection.  Unless these are different tracks....
