Merry Christmas to all and 220th Anniversary of pterosaur discovery

Good day!
As it is 220 years this year (2004) from the first pterosaur find, 
Pterodactylus antiquus of Solnhofen limestone, I wonder what was the meaning of 
it at the time. Did they consider it to be some kind of a bat or a bird before 
Cuvier recognized that it was reptile? Thanks and merry Christmas to you all.
