Re: Retroposon evidence for an explosive radiation of Neoaves



They've got Paleognaths grouping together, then chicken-ducks (not
that this is controversial, I just like saying chicken-ducks).

And then like said a very comby Neoaves. They show the Turaco and
Cuckoo as sisters as are Swifts and Hummingbirds. They find that New
World Vultures are definitely not closely related to storks. Owls and
Falcons show as very close, but not in a sister group relationship, I
think that there used to be a lot of people that argued for this.
