Re: Gansus Bird-Dino Connection - Penn Press Release
Climbing hoatzin chicks aren't perching...at least while climbing.
Cassowarys are reported to occasionally scale trees, and I doubt very
much that they perch. If a bird is arboreal without wrapping its toes
around the branch I assume that would be a non-perhcing bird. That
said, I share Tim's general opinion that modern birds would have a
difficult time being arboreal non-perchers.
