Really?  Perhaps the article is referring to _Changchengornis_, a bird closely
related to _Confuciusornis_ (which, being much more common, is more likely the

dinosaur, of course, but the passage above is bound to confuse the general
public.

The web site refers to it as a bird; they've restored it to look rather like a colourful, odd-looking canary.
