Re: Origin of bird flight: ontogenetic-transitional wing (OTW) hypothesis

No extant avian uses its forelimbs to catch prey, because these forms already have the forelimbs highly modified into wings; or else they are flightless birds that evolved from forms that had the forelimbs highly modified into wings.
