I've moved the grebes next to the flamingoes in the orders list to reflect the fact that they are sister taxa and that the link between the grebes and divers is due to convergence. Hope that's OK with everyone? SP-KP (talk) 18:33, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Changing template to Dinosaur template[edit]

User:4444hhhh made some edits [1] to this template making it primarily a dinosaur template. I'm not sure there was any discussion or consensus on this so I reverted it for the time being. I would think a separate template for dinos would be more appropriate. If the consensus is otherwise, feel free to restore. Rgrds. --Tombstone (talk) 05:00, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry if I rush things. Maybe the template shoud be turn into a dinosaur template. Because birds and dinosaurs have basically the same DNA, like, 100% as well as other traits. We should put Ornithischia and Saurischia in the orders section and Paleontology in the humans and dinosaur section. Dinosaur Size will probably need a new section, whick would mean we need to create a Bird Size article. Feathered dinosaurs will be in the evolution section. Dinosaur classification will be the evolution section. We may need to create a new article. Dinosaur Evolution, so that way we have one for birds and for dinosaurs. Any comments?--4444hhhh (talk) 13:12, 5 April 2008 (UTC)


my recent edits on Columbea have been reverted. I don't understand the reason. Current form the classification in Columbea section of the template is inconsistent with what's written in Columbea article. (talk) 17:22, 21 December 2015 (UTC)


In addition, the classification of Passerea-section is also inconsistent with the article Passerea. These sections in the template are wrong and needs corrections. Why did you put the incorrect template under protection? (talk) 17:27, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Could you make the following groupwidth additions as follows[edit]

=== then, It will look perfect=== (talk) 04:29, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

How to manage this template's initial visibility
To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|state=collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{Birds |state=collapsed}}
|state=expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{Birds |state=expanded}}
|state=autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{Birds |state=autocollapse}}

Unless set otherwise (see the |state= parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is autocollapse.
