Dogs have a large urge to chase small animals, such as birds. She most likely just wants something to chase. Try playing fetch with her with a favorite toy. That should keep her mind off of the birds.

You can also teach her a command that will keep her focus away from the birds. Bring treats along with you, and when she trys to get the bird, say some kind of word that can use to get her eyes off of the birds.

Honestly, its not a big deal for her to be chasing birds unless you don't like it. When she gets tired of it, then she'll stop.
