This article is about the television programme. For the location of the same name, see 3rd & Bird (location).

3rd & Bird is a British television programme created by Josh Selig and produced by his company, Little Airplane Productions. It revolves around a group of birds who live in a treetop community. The series premiered on CBeebies in June 2008. Described in its initial press release as "a charming new animated series all about community", the programme format generally involves one or more of the characters encountering a problem which must be solved using the social skills which pre-school children must develop in order to make their way in the world.

Like Selig's previous venture, Wonder Pets!, the show uses an animation style known as "photo-puppetry", in which the animation is created by the use of manipulation of photographs.

In January 2009, BBC Worldwide announced plans to release 3rd & Bird merchandise, including wooden stacking toys, pull along vehicles, play sets and musical instruments, as well as wheeled toys, including trikes, scooters, and ride-ons. The product line was released in spring 2010.

Two compact discs featuring the 3rd & Bird theme song (along with many other CBeebies show tracks) were released by CBeebies titled CBeebies: Song Time (2010) and CBeebies: The Album (2012).
