Gastornis

Gastornis was a terror bird of the late Paleocene and early Eocene Epoch.  It was a large predatory bird that ate small mammals.  It could not fly but instead ran around the jungles hunting its prey similar to the Tyrannosaurus did back in the Cretaceous.  It used its massive head and powerful beak to knock down prey and kill.  Like all birds it laid eggs,  unlike flying birds that choose nests that are well camouflage this massive bird laid eggs in open nests, that can be targeted by nest raiders.  Spite being a terrifying predator it may have been good parents taking care of there chicks until they are big enough to hunt alone.
