This is so great, now the big guys, what sort of feathering could we expect? Vulture bare heads? Turkey like, or more raptor like hawks etc.? Just wow

I'm probably excited about this discovery for the wrong reason: it was a SASKATCHEWAN fossil! No biggie

Hate to burst your excitement, but the fossil was found in Myanmar/Burma. Not Canada. It was described by a team of Canadian and Chinese scientists if that helps.

The bubble has been burst :B ...after further reading I have concluded that Myanmar is a country in Asia and my local news are liars, still neat to have your home province given a mention though

This is... just... wow. This little thing, in my opinion, has got to be THE most perfectly preserved dinosaur fossil of all time.

Likely from a small primitive coelurosaur

See, this is how it begins; everybody's all "oh, this is so amazing" but a couple of years from now when we're all being eaten by cloned Acrocanthrosaurs we'll know who to blame!

Kidding aside, this is really an awesome discovery.

At first, I had my doubts, due to that the pic here reminds me more of a seed part of wheat.  But after the article......wow.

Epic!
I'd say it's probably a basal avialan/troodontid.

They've identified it as some sort of coelurosaur.

Basal avialans and troodontids are both coelurosaurs, so that doesn't necesarilly confirm nor deny my guess.

The tail pretty much denies avalians for the most part, simply because it seems like part of it has been cut off and it seems that it would be a lot longer.

Basal avialans had long tails.
Think Archaeopteryx, Aurornis, Balaur etc.
