While that may be true, Professor Horner and his team discovered that dinosaurs were in some respects even more bird-like than previously thought. For instance, dinosaurs, even big ones like Tyrannosaurus Rex, grew up as quickly as birds. By cutting dino bones into thin slices, Jack Horner could see that the blood vessels inside were much bigger than they'd be in mammals of comparable size.
"Blood vessels as big as that are good for only one thing; transporting large quantities of nutrition, and that's what's needed for fast growth. What's more, dinosaur bones turn out to have seasonal rings, just like trees, so we know how fast they grew."
