A giant bird that lived in the time of dinosaurs. Or, to put it simply, a dinosaur.

Subby hasn't heard that the definition of dinosaur was expanded a while ago and now includes birds, both extant and extinct.

On closer observation, the scientists were able to determine the birds name was Steve. He was like, a little gay, but not totally all the way gay. He was just like, flexible ok?  They also determined that he lived in a two story walk up in the Meteor View Heights neighborhood of little Cuzco.

He was a Mason and a member of the LDS Church.

Well if you agree with cladistic classification and most biologists do.
Basically any taxa alway includes all descendants from the group's common ancestor. So it is not a change of definition, but recognition of evolutionary relationships.

If all birds are dinosaurs, wouldn't a duck-billed dinosaur just be a duck?

That would depend on what your definition of definition is.

"The fossilized remains of the bird's vertebra were found in 2009 at the Tremp Formation..."

So, a layer of orange rock.
