There are a number of news stories and media links about the recent

in-Dinosaurier-als-ein-Urvogel

Among the highlights were the ?sickle-clawed? troodontid tracks found at
the Obernkirchen site in northern Germany, mentioned before on the DML.
Chinese experts also presented evidence that Archaeopteryx is a
?sickle-clawed? dinosaur and not a primitive bird. Other topics included
the conditions under which the Obernkirchen tracks were preserved and how
long they took to accumulate. 

In another story, a 235-million-year-old three-toed track of a possible
early dinosaur was recently found in Sommerhausen near Würzburg in southern
Germany. However, its identification as a dinosaur track is not certain
given its early date.
