All them pretty birdies:

The interesting guys are in the top 2/3. Strike
_Eutreptodactylus_ from Cuculidae (as if ever...) and
"Gruiformes" is of course open to debate... The rest
is about OK for the time being.

And of course we have _Waimanu_ now, basal in
Sphenisciformes.

Much from Charadriiformes down is Maastrichtian
survivors (early Pg). It is in many cases better to
forget anything above genera.
