I basically pinched the title from an email sent to the Dinosaur Mailing List by Dr Thomas Holtz from the University of Maryland.
In cladistic terms birds are simply highly derived coelurosaurian dinosaurs. (Though of couse it depends where you want to draw your line. They - and us - just as legitimately could be described as highly derived sarcopterygian fish. I suppose it depends which common ancestor you are more keen on.)

Fry finds 'funniest ever' mating ritual
When Stephen Fry goes in search of the rare kakapo - "the old night parrot of New Zealand" - he finds himself privy to an unusual mating ritual which is "one of the funniest things he has ever seen".
Fry and zoologist Mark Carwardine have been tracking down some of the most endangered animals on the planet in a six-part series.
Last Chance to See goes in search of the Kakapo on Sunday 4 October at 2000BST on BBC Two.
