its the Birds Are Not Dinosaurs bandwagon that has no evidence at all.
im not overly informed on the specifics of it, but if tyrannosaurus has bird proteins inside it, and archeopteryx (a BIRD) has a dromaeosaur style sickle claw, and many ceolurosaurian theropods sharing, among other features, bird feathers, then the answer is pretty obvious imo

Tyrannosaurus is a possible descendent of an ostrich, because he had a "fully improved" stance like an ostrich, he also ran on his toes, and possibly juvenile T. rex's had feathers.

T-Rex,Descendants of ostriches?!?!?!That means it evolve into ostriches.And also,just because they have one thing in common doesn't mean Rex are ANCESTOR of the ostriches,Ornithomimids are even more similar.
Running on the toes?All birds do that and so does all theropod

Birds are not dinsoaurs Vs birds are dinosaurs. This is a very complex question.
There are many species of birds and there is speculation whether any of these species can be traced back to archaeopteryx and it's ilk. Whether any species can be crossed linked to a suspected decendant species of the dinosaur era, is also not conclusively proven.
All present day species of birds could have evovled after the dinosaur era, and have no link to archaeopteryx and its possible cousins Microraptor, and anchiornis, etc, whos decendants became extinct during or shortly after the dinosaur era.
Any genus of animal, plant, etc, that evolves in a similar environment will develop similar traits.
Consider the American Road runner,( no not Wile E Coyote's mate) whos behavioural patterns are particularly akin to a T'rex, velociraptor type. They hunt mammals, reptiles, and insects, and attack large prey like snakes together. They kill larger prey with a blow from the beak, and also by lifting their prey and smashing them against rocks. But just because they behave in a similar manner to these dinosaurs is not to say they are related.
So, Band or Bad?, it might be better to say that 'All birds are not dinosaurs, if any',= Abandia?
OK guys lets try this again!

Alan Feduccia has a long-standing disagreement with the “birds from dinosaurs” theories. Although birds and dinosaurs may have come from a common ancestor and share some common features, Feduccia and his 300-page book, packed with research results, illustrations, and data, cast doubts on the majority opinion.

one long-time BANDit writing a book does not cast doubt an a theory so well embedded and backed up. Remember, a scientists role is to disprove theories, so if the majority opinion is X, X is far more likely to be true than Y. And Y has little backing to boot.

How can birds and dinosaurs come from 1 ancestor,birds appeared in the Late Cretaceous if I remember correctly,dinosaurs have been around since the Triassic.

They didn't, they split into 2 branches.

I was talking to Tyranna2 who believed dinosaurs and birds have a common ancestor.
