Of course all fossils, like all species, are transitional, but the fossil remains of Anchiornis huxleyi certainly seem to be a link between dinosaurs and birds, and one would think that maybe now the rabid creationists would admit that there is at least one fossil that meets their incredibly narrow view of what a transitional fossil is.  Wait, who am I kidding, of course they won’t!
