An ungual phalanx of an osprey (Aves, Accipitridae Pandioninae) is described from the early Oligocene of the Mainz basin in Germany. The specimen is among the earliest fossil records of this avian group and the first from the Paleogene of Germany.ZusammenfassungEs wird die Kralle eines Fischadlers (Aves, Accipitridae Pandioninae) aus dem Unteroligozän des Mainzer Beckens beschrieben. Das Exemplar zählt zu den ältesten Fossilnachweisen dieser Vogelgruppe und ist der erste Nachweis aus dem Pal… 
An Analysis of Osprey/Chewing Lice Interaction, with a New Record for Saudi Arabia
TLDR
The presence of this parasite on some aquatic birds of prey like osprey may indicate that the ancestors of these birds were terrestrial hunters that acquired this louse from their prey such as doves and pigeons before their transference to aquatic life.
fossil birds from the late Miocene of Chad and Ethiopia and zoogeographical implications
Since a review of the Tertiary birds of Africa 30 years ago by Rich (1974), a great wealth of new data and new interpretations have augmented this fossil record, hitherto still relatively poor when
A new time tree reveals Earth history’s imprint on the evolution of modern birds
TLDR
P pervasive evidence is found that avian evolution has been influenced by plate tectonics and environmental change, two basic features of Earth’s dynamics.

TLDR
A new model for the origin of LD migrations is proposed, the ‘shifting home’ model (SHM), which reconciliates ecologically tropical ancestry of most LD migrants with predominant winter range shifts, in accordance with requirements for heritable homing.
Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis of Talons of Diurnal Bird of Prey
TLDR
This work set out to find a tool that allows for the determination of toe (I‐IV) and hindlimb (left or right) identity, and established qualitative and quantitative differences and similarities among talons lacking the keratin sheath in diurnal raptors.

The fossil birds of the British Upper Eocene are re-examined, further species are described, and additional material referred to existing species. Seeley's Macrornis tanaupus appears to be non-avian.

Monophyly of the Falconiformes Based on Syringeal Morphology
TLDR
Overall results indicate that syringeal morphology is conservative, with most of the informative variation occurring at higher systematic levels, and supports the monophyly of the Falconiformes.
The deep divergences of neornithine birds: a phylogenetic analysis of morphological characters
TLDR
A broad array of morphological characters (including both cranial and postcranial characters) are analyzed for an ingroup densely sampling Neornithes, with crown clade outgroups used to polarize these characters.

TLDR
The phylogenetic position of Paleogene birds indicates that diversification of the crown‐groups of modern avian‘families’ did not take place before the Oligocene, irrespective of their relative position within Neornithes (crown‐group birds).

PARALLEL RADIATIONS IN THE PRIMARY CLADES OF BIRDS
TLDR
Examination of intron 7 of the β‐fibrinogen gene in the most taxonomically inclusive survey of DNA sequences of nonpasserine bird families and orders to date suggests that Neoaves consist of two sister clades with ecological parallelisms comparable to those found between marsupial and placental mammals.
