RE: Origin of Birds Research Project

Mayr's "Paleogene Fossil Birds" gives a nice summary of the early 
diversification of modern birds. There's a preview on Google 
http://books.google.de/books?id=P_TB72RBLLMC&printsec=frontcover which might 
already be sufficient for your purpose.

All the best,

 No fully up-to-date (2013) review,
 but the Theropoda and Aves chapters of The Complete Dinosaur
 2nd edition give some really recent
 material, up through extant birds.
 Chiappe's Glorified Dinosaurs is good for many features, but
 misses out on the diversity of living birds and the later
 of the many small archaeopterygid-grade maniraptorans.
