Narrative

A peak, 1719m high, on Ross Island, 7 miles southward of Cape Bird, the northern extremity of the island. Named by the NAE, 1901-04, for Lietenant Edward Joseph Bird, who was on the Erebus with Ross in 1839-41. It is a mountain with a swelling dome with a distinct longitudinal axis towards the north. It is capped by a ridge of three small dark cones, which are the only outcrops of rock to be seen from McMurdo Sound. The slope of Mt Bird towards the north is very gradual.
