Re: New Cretaceous bird fills fossil gap

Quoting Guy Leahy <xrciseguy@sbcglobal.net>:

Fossils show living birds descended from waterfowl
By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent

"Every bird living today, from ostriches ... to bald
eagles, probably evolved from a Gansus-like ancestor,"
Matthew Lamanna of Carnegie Natural History Museum in
Pittsburgh told a news conference.

Yet another sweeping statement prompted by a single fossil?
