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 the Accipitrimorphaeeagles, hawks, buzzards, vultures etc – owls and woodpeckers, among others).[2] They appear to be the sister group of a newly defined clade centered on Aequornithes.[3]

Given that the most basal extant members of both Afroaves and Australaves are predatory, the common ancestor of Telluraves may have been a predator.[3] Many researchers are skeptical of this assessment, because some extinct representatives were herbivorous Strigogyps.[4]
