New bird-like dinosaur from Wyoming

The paravian dinosaur Hesperornithoides meissleri from the Late Jurassic Morrison Formation of Wyoming has been described in a new paper. It had been informally known only as "Lori" for over a decade, so I and many others are understandably excited that it has finally been published. I had the pleasure of seeing the holotype of this species at the Wyoming Dinosaur Center, and I can say that it is a beautiful specimen.

Doesn't look like a bird I would want to bump into, while foraging for my afternoon Lunch.
