Well-preserved fossils of the Late Jurassic paravian dinosaur Anchiornis from China reveal that it regurgitated stomach pellets like modern birds and ate lizards and fish.

A troodontid. 

Are you going to draw a reconstruction of one?

While Anchiornis was originally classified as a troodontid, it has more recently been placed in its own family the Anchiornithidae. I don't currently have any plans to draw it but who knows, I might get around to it someday.
