1. Das erste Glied des zweiten Fingers am Flügelskelett verschiedener Vögel trägt am distalen ulnaren Rand einen mehr oder weniger entwickelten Fortsatz(processus internus indicis), der bei anderen Arten vollständig fehlt. 2. Dieser Fortsatz dient zur Führung der Sehne desm. interosseus palmaris, der das zweite Glied des zweiten Fingers adduciert (in die Ebene des Flügels zurückzieht). Das Vorhandensein eines Fortsatzes bedingt größeren Nutzeffekt der Zugkraft desm. inteross. palmaris, was bei… 
Funktionell bedingte Eigenheiten am Metacarpus des Vogelflügels
1. Bei verschiedenen Vögeln findet sich an der inneren, dem Metacarpale III zugewandten Seite des Metacarpale II ein Fortsatz, der bei starker Entwicklung mit seiner Spitze dem Metacarpale III von
Pumiliornis tessellatus Mayr, 1999 revisited — new data on the osteology and possible phylogenetic affinities of an enigmatic Middle Eocene bird
TLDR
The new osteological data presented in this study document that P. tessellatus had an at least semizygodactyl foot, with a very wide basal phalanx of the fourth toe, and lacked an ossified pons supratendineus on the distal tibiotarsus.
Osteological evidence for paraphyly of the avian order Caprimulgiformes (nightjars and allies)

The first phylogenetic analysis of osteological characters in the Caprimulgiformes (nightjars and allies) provides strong evidence that this order is paraphyletic. Well supported is monophyly of a
The phylogenetic affinities of the Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex)

TLDR
A cladistic analysis of 54 anatomical characters resulted in monophyly of the shoebill and showed both Ciconiiformes and Pelecaniformes to be polyphyletic and the Phaethontidae share derived characters with the Procellariiformes, which might support a sister group relationship between the two taxa.
Skeletal morphology of the middle Eocene swift Scaniacypselus and the evolutionary history of true swifts (Apodidae)
  • G. Mayr

  • 2014
TLDR
The less specialized wing and pectoral girdle morphology suggests that Scaniacypselus was probably not as aerial as extant Apodidae, and the differences in foot morphology indicate that it was more arboreal than its living relatives and had different breeding and roosting habits.
Reappraisal of Eocypselus—a stem group apodiform from the early Eocene of Northern Europe
TLDR
A new skeleton from the Danish Fur Formation is reported, in which for the first time the skull and pelvis are preserved, and it is detailed that E. vincenti falls outside crown group Apodiformes and represents the earliest diverging apodiform bird.
The alleged early Miocene Auk Petralca austriaca is a Loon (Aves, Gaviiformes): restudy of a controversial fossil bird
TLDR
This study studies the holotype specimen of the alleged fossil auk Petralca austriaca from early Miocene marine deposits of the Austrian locality Pucking and shows that the taxon is clearly distinguished from auks in various skeletal features and can be confidently identified as a loon (Gaviiformes).
Broken gears in the avian molecular clock: new phylogenetic analyses support stem galliform status for Gallinuloides wyomingensis and rallid affinities for Amitabha urbsinterdictensis
TLDR
A new study of A. urbsinterdictensis and G. wyomingensis indicates they are inappropriate internal calibration points for Galliformes and may have contributed to overestimation of divergence event ages.
A new raptorial bird from the Middle Eocene of Messel, Germany
TLDR
Three different published phylogenies of the extant taxa are used as “backbone” phylogenies to determine the relationships of the new taxon by minimising the amount of homoplasy in the phylogenetically informative characters visible in the two known specimens.
