Clades

Telluraves (also called land birds or core landbirds) is a recently defined[1] clade of birds with controversial content. Based on most recent genetic studies, the clade unites a variety of bird groups, including the australavians (passerines, parrots, seriamas, and falcons) as well as the afroavians (including raptors and woodpeckers).[2][3] They appear to be the sister group of a newly defined clade centered on Aequornithes.[4]

Given that the two most basal branches of both Afroaves and Australaves have predatory extant members, it is inferred that the common ancestor of Telluraves was an apex predator;[4] however, some researchers like Darren Naish are skeptical of this assessment, since some extinct representatives such as the herbivorous Strigogyps lead other lifestyles.[5]
