Bird fossils unearthed
At one stomach-churning moment during a recent expedition to remote
northwest China, Pittsburgh paleontologist Matt Lamanna promised fellow
scientists he would eat a duck foot if they unearthed a rare bird
fossil. 
Well, dinner was hard to swallow that night for Lamanna, who since has
uncovered a lode of superbly preserved bird fossils in the country's
Changma Basin, which he said supports the prevailing theory that birds
are direct descendants of dinosaurs.
