Bird-talk again...

A lot of reconstructtions I have seen of dinosaurs look and behave (in
cartoons, movies etc.) like birds.  One aspect I have noted lately is that
nearly all birds hop when on the ground.  Has there been any evidence found
(tracks and traces) that dinosaurs hopped?  Even so, would many dinosaurs
be capable of hopping?  I could easily visualise a small dinosaur hopping,
but a ten metre long hadrosaur for example, would look quite funny if not

Just curious about bird-dinosaur links......
