Re: T.Rex Feather Skepticism
I believe that finfoots hatch very altricial, though the parents do take
them in those wing-pouches of course..what about penguins and petrels by the
way? Auks? Or don't they qualify as ground-birds? Kakapo also hatch
altricial,as do ground and night parrots..hey! here we might have real
altricial ground birds! Perhaps secretary birds could also be included?

Which brings up an interesting question: are any ground birds altricial?
