Family Search has a Census Record of Robert Bird b abt 1878 spouse Nellie living in Philly.  Unless your old like me, that may not be the one you are refering too.  If the person you are searching for is less than 100 yrs old, online searching is almost impossible.  Try posting to Bird Family Genealogy Forum.  Try also Jerdan/Jordan Forums.

Robert Bird and Nellie Harden had a son who died in 1912. He is buried in Greenmount Cemetery.  Maybe you can find more information there.
