Re: Piksi a pterosaur, not a bird from Upper Cretaceous

Rescued from truncation:

Ornithodesmus could count as a bird first thought to be a pterosaur=2C if y=
ou have a broad definition of 'bird'.  "Archaeopteryx" "vicensensis" is ano=
ther pterosaur first thought to be a bird.  An example almost as terrible a=
s Pristavolucris (probably a junior synonym of Lonchidion) is the Kota bird=
  that ended up being Indocoelacanthus.
