Mount Bird is a 1,765 m (5,791 ft) high shield volcano standing about 7 miles (11 km) south of Cape Bird, the northern extremity of Ross Island. It was mapped by the British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04, under Robert Falcon Scott, and apparently named by them after Cape Bird. Shell Glacier and Endeavour Piedmont Glacier lie on its slopes.
