I'm Trying Really Hard to be a Stork by Eurwentala I'm Trying Really Hard to be a Stork by Eurwentala
Buitreraptor gonzalezorum, a small and extremely stork-like dromaeosaur from the Cretaceous of Argentina. This rooster-sized critter had long legs and a long snout with many small teeth, well suited for catching fish. I reconstructed it as something between a small flightless heron and a pelican.

I used the skeleton by Scott Hartmann (here: [link]) as a reference, and also got the inspiration for the title from him.

Why is hard to imagine it like a stork?
Drive imagine based on several info sources: enviroment, behaviour, potential preys, potential predators, possible ichnitas, ontogenetic development, etc.
More clues drive us to an accurate portraits. Less clues drive us to a high especulation based on a subjective criterion
żdo we have an enought ammount of info about Buitreraptor gonzalezsorum?
I lke your artwork. Enhance view angles an morphology.
Best wishes

No wonder that "Stork-raptor" well be so hard to working on that beak, unless it could be a part of Qilong's dinosaurian lips version as comparing to mines!;) (Well, pretty neat huh?^^;)

Silly raptor! Storks haven't been invented yet.

It might be it's storks trying to be Buitreraptor instead. :)

A little small for a stork maybe? Perhaps a small heron would be a closer analogue.

Agreed, the size fits them better. I only realised the misleading word later, as in my language, storks, adjutants, herons and egrets all have the same common name.

That actually makes a lot more sense than having about ten different words for birds that look really similar.
