Scientific classification
Gastornis or Diatryma (Gaston's bird) was a giant bird as tall as a man and lived in the Paleocene and Eocene periods in the early Cenozoic where its fossils have been found in Europe and North America.

Gastornis was related to cranes and not phorusrhacids as commonly believed. At first, it was thought to be a carnivore, but now we know it is more likely to have been either a herbivore or an omnivore mainly due to the fact that it did not have a curved beak, a feature that most predatory birds had.
