RE: Viva Neornithine Birds!



 All I want are hypotheses for why neornithines.  

For a testable and partly tested hypothesis based on physics of the impact,
see Robertson et al., 2004, Survival in the first hours of the Cenozoic,
Geological Society of America Buletin, May/June 2004, v. 116:5/6; 760-768.
The prediction is that sheltering behavior made a critical difference in
survival.
