The new species, Falcarius utahensis, could be the connection between a group of vicious meat-eating dinosaurs, related to Velociraptor, and another bizarre group of vegetarian dinosaurs known as therizinosaurs, said James Kirkland, Utah's state paleontologist.
Kirkland said flowering plants, a possible food source, could have drawn Falcarius.
Falcarius may have dabbled in the world of meat as well as the leafy stuff, according to a study in Wednesday's edition of the journal Nature.

 US researchers find new kind of feathered dinosaur -- Middle East Times
The scientists do not yet know whether Falcarius utahensis was a meateater or ate only plants or both, according to James Kirkland, Utah state paleontologist at the Utah Geological Survey and principal scientist for the new study.
Feathered dinosaurs of the type known as Beipiaosaurus have been found in southeast China in recent years and Falcarius and Beipiaosaurus are about the same age and seem to represent an intermediate stage between lethal animals such as the velociraptors featured in the film Jurassic Park and later plant-eating therizinosaurs.
The new study shows that Falcarius was not a direct descendant from velociraptors but shared with them a common, so far undiscovered, ancestor, according to Scott Sampson of the Utah Museum of Natural History.

 CBC News: Carnivorous dinosaurs turned to veggies
Paleontologist James Kirkland of the Utah Geological Survey and his colleagues unearthed the mass graveyard of 2,000 bones at the Cedar Mountain formation south of Green River.
Therizinosaur (pronounced THAY-rih-ZY-no-sores) were mainly found in Asia, but their fossils are scarce.
The find helps researchers to fill in gaps in their understanding of plant-eating Therizinosaurs that evolved from meat-eaters.

Scientists can't yet tell whether Falcarius (sickle-maker, for its four-inch sickle-like claws) ate meat, plants or both, according to James Kirkland, state paleontologist for the Utah Geological Survey and principal scientist for the study.
The discovery of the new "missing link" species was announced Wednesday during a news conference at the University of Utah and in a paper published Thursday in the journal Nature.
He was working in Colorado at the time, and Denver fossil enthusiast John Scandizzo provided him with rough coordinates to the spot, located on federal land overseen by the Bureau of Land Management, but he couldn't find it.

 Science, Wackmobiles and You: Saturday, April 30, 2005
` Probably a more familiar example of a dromaeosaur would be Velociraptor- which James T. Kirkland (a paleontologist you may have heard of) once assured me was not nearly as large and panic-inducing as the ones depicted in Stephen Spielberg's blockbuster movie, Jurassic Park.
` However, birds are most closely linked with the more famous sickle-clawed dinosaurs known as dromaeosaurs (DROME-ee-o-saurs), or 'swiftly-running reptiles', which had fairly large brains and an even more impressive hooked claw than troodontids.
The early fossil record of dromaeosaurs and Jurassic-aged birds is relatively sketchy, so it's hard to say exactly when this animal could have lived.
