Alan Charles Bird (28 September 1906 – 21 July 1962) was an Australian politician. Born in Launceston, Tasmania, he was educated at state primary schools in Melbourne and at Melbourne High School before becoming an engineer. As an official with the Amalgamated Engineers' Union, he was associated with the Australian Labor Party.
Bird was elected to Northcote City Council in 1930 at the age of twenty-four and served continuously on the Council for the remainder of his life. Bird served as Mayor in 1940–41 and again in 1958–59. He was elected to the Australian House of Representatives in 1949 as the Labor member for Batman. Concurrent service on both Northcote Council as well as the federal parliament was certainly prejudicial to Bird's health. He died in July 1962.
