This one caught my eye. Much as I'm working on ammonites, dinos are my 1st love, and the dino-bird connection is one I find especially fascinating.

Changyuraptor belongs to the same family as Microraptor, but is much larger, yet still able to fly or, at least, glide. The short version - small size doesn't automatically go hand in hand with aerial capability. It also seems to confirm that the story of avian origins is complicated and bushy, rather than simple and linear. 

The link above has more info, but you could also pm me.
Finally found bone[biggrin]
