Walls, Nests and Feathered Friends
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The Bird is a risky opening for the uninformed. Advancing the f-pawn exposes the White king to checks on the diagonal and leaves a hole beside the advanced pawn on the g- and e-files. These are lasting structural weaknesses that cannot be undone. If studied and played properly by keeping a weary eye on these permanent weaknesses, the Bird can be a sound career opening as it does help fight for control of the important e5-square in the center. The Bird's left-handed cousin 1.c4 the English Opening is more popular world-wide.

Henry Edward Bird was a good player in his day. Plenty of his losses are posted here against some of the all-time great players, which is not necessarily the fault of the opening. Famous great players usually win, regardless of the opening.
