fighterbox - A Free and Simple explanation is here:
http://www.chesscentral.com/articles_ch ... bird_2.htm

Use that to go through this database.
http://www.chessville.com/downloads_fil ... g/Bird.pgn

The first place for a GM explanation is Chessbase's Bird Opening.
http://www.chessbase.com/shop/product.a ... ser=&coin=

After that, you'll need to graduate to Pickard's Big Bird Powerbase which I've noticed, is temporarily discounted!
So order now, and you can save 10 dollars! :P

I'm pretty sure that Bird cd from ChessBase is written by an IM.

You're absolutely right. Thanks for the correction. The point is that the Bird Chessbase CD is a good start for expert instruction, and then to proceed to Chess Central's Bird Powerbase.

From: http://www.chesscafe.com/text/hansen38.pdf , page 22.

"I like Oleinikov's detailed examination of typical ideas
against the various set-ups for Black, but his section with
annotated games is absolutely appalling, and his database is
unimpressive. Pickard doesn't have anything similar to
Oleinikov's examination, but the size of the database is
staggering, and the inclusion of the many annotated by the
best players from the 19th and beginning of the 20th century
is absolutely first class and worth every penny of the price of
the CD [$29.95]. Therefore if you can afford it and you have a distinct
interest in Bird's Opening, buy both. If you have to buy one,
it depends on your strength, players up to around USCF 1500
will probably benefit more from Oleinikov's approach, while
those rated higher than 1500 will have more use of Pickard's
CD."

Fighterbox, I would never have recommended YouTube as a source for reliable opening instruction. This is because of the range in quality, from various users. In my opinion, examples of good instruction come from greencastleblock, and examples of sub-par instruction are provided by jrobichess.

Surprising that a GM has spent the time to give away free lessons on YouTube/videochess.net 8) with about 16-20 free videos on 1.f4.

So now I know, thanks for that!
