RE: New BBC series research-fine feathered dinos

While N.A. has had several feathered dinos
discovered, it has seemed that the Mongolian-Chinese 
fossil record is 'richer' in these animals (going by
the various news outlets.)
Is that just chance?
Could the environments have been different enough
to spur feathers in what is today's Orient?
